Victor Mature plays Samson, the superstrong young Danite. Samson aspires to marry Philistine noblewoman Semadar (Angela Lansbury), but she is killed when her people attack Samson as a blood enemy.

Show more Samson and Delilah is Cecil B. DeMille's characteristically expansive retelling of the events found in the Old Testament passages of Judges 13-16. Victor Mature plays Samson, the superstrong young Danite. Samson aspires to marry Philistine noblewoman Semadar (Angela Lansbury), but she is killed when her people attack Samson as a blood enemy. Seeking revenge, Semadar's younger sister Delilah (Hedy Lamarr) woos Samson in hopes of discovering the secret of his strength, thus enabling her to destroy him. When she learns that his source of his virility is his long hair, Delilah plies Samson with drink, then does gives him the Old Testament equivalent of a buzzcut while he snores away. She delivers the helpless Samson to the Philistines, ordering that he be put to work as a slave. Blinded and humiliated by his enemies, Samson is a sorry shell of his former self. Ultimately, Samson's hair grows back, thus setting the stage for the rousing climax wherein Samson literally brings down the house upon the wayward Philistines. Hedy Lamarr is pretty hopeless as Delilah, but Victor Mature is surprisingly good as Samson, even when mouthing such idiotic lines as "That's all right. It's only a young lion". Even better is George Sanders as The Saran of Gaza, who wisely opts to underplay his florid villainy. The spectacular climax to Samson and Delilah allows us to forget such dubious highlights as Samson's struggl

I recently bought through Amazon.ca the movie SAMSON AND DELILAH which was sold by GROOVEYARD. I received it today and I must admit I am somewhat disapointed.
This DVD is evidently a bootleg and a very bad one. The DVD cover is of poor quality as is the disc print, obviously homemade.

That is not to mention the movie itself which looks like a clip downloaded from low quality Youtube!!!! And I don't mention the menu....

And a thing that really disapoints me is the fact that I got it from Amazon and that I am not used to that kind of low quality product at their store.

I'm sorry to say this but, in the future when I make an order at Amazon, I'll make sure it's not from GROOVEYARD.

I was soo very dissapointed when i got this movie, no where on the package does it indicate that there are chinese subtitles. When i contacted the manufacture for a refund there response was cold and short. I had to send out several email to confirm the procedure of returning the dvd for a refund. It has been over three weeks and i still have not heard back from them, This is my first bad experience with Amazon. The whole experience was very frustrating .

This is one of those nastolgic masterpieces that I was happy to get on dvd to replace my vhs version. The story is probably familiar to almost everyone. The dvd transfer is beautiful, it is full screen and you also get entrance and exit music. It is also on one disc so there is no having to pop in the second disc. To me this is the best version, actually I also have the Elizabeth Hurley version which is good. Anyway, this one is a keeper!

This is my favorite"Biblical"film. Great cast,great film production
a class act all the way. The "Ten commandments" &"Ben Hur" were all
great epics in their rights but I'm I alone when I say we're really
just waiting for the parting of the red sea and the chariot race.
This epic was told entertainingly (and mercifully) at 128 minutes
and has just as many glorious technicolor moments as the later award
winners. The so called drugged lion fight is actually no better or
worse than say "Hercules" or "Demetrius and the Gladiators" Keep in
mind this is 1949, The choregraphed Man vs.beast dance was still in
its infant stage. There's also the wedding feast fight and the bone
of an Ass massacre not to mention Climatic collapse of the mighty
Dagon temple. I hope that Paramount pays attention to detail when<BRthey finally put this technicolor wonder out on disc with original
trailer (I know Greatest show on earth is out this month so maybe
just maybe) "I'll need no eyes to find you"

One of DeMille's finest, from the sets and costumes to the superb acting and expressive music. Even the bit players are wonderful (look for George Reeves as the wounded Messenger relating the Battle of Ramath-Lehi to an incredulous George Sanders in terms that echoed the intro to Reeves' most famous role a few years later!). Lamarr is stunning, Mature is intense ("Look about you, Delilah..."), Sanders plays himself as the world-weary Seran of Gaza. Even ol'warhorse and longtime DeMille associate Henry Wilcoxson gets to shine as Prince Atur (he was originally supposed to play Samson, but was considered too old). There is no counting of the stars. Five is not nearly enough.
Our only quibble is with the way Dagon is portrayed in the temple scene. All the decor is Babylonian, and the idol looks like Moloch, the Canaanite sun god to whom certain kings of Judah used to sacrifice infants until commanded by God, through King Josiah, to desist (2 Chron. 28:3; 33:6; Jer. 7:31; 32:35; 2 Kings 23:10). The Philistines were related to the Phoenicians, not the Babylonians. Their wealth came from the sea. Dagon was an ocean god like Neptune, and was portrayed as a fish or a merman. The only decor in the movie that properly reflects Dagon are Delilah's fish earrings in the wedding scene.
This should be released on DVD so that like Miriam says at the end, we can watch his story "for a thousand years"!

De Mille, with God as his co-maker. In general, the plot follows the bible story, though Victor Mature's Samson, costumed in terry leotards and a montrous wig, bilious and flaccid, as though he couldn't pull down the papier-mache temple. He does it, though, and he (his double) wrestles a moth-eaten lion and crowns several extras with the jaw of an ass. Hedy Lamarr was in general considered too old for the role of Delilah (Lamarr was thirty six at the time) but when De Mille couldn't get pitiful Gail Russell for Delilah (she always arrived on set drunk) it had to be Lamarr, who's Delilah, with her slurry German-English would be more at home in a Yorkville Bar than in a high-tone Philistine residence. All in all, the film does not enhance the glory of De Mille or his Associate; its splendors are purely in the camp division. Among the supporting cast are George Sanders, as the head man of the Philistines, Henry Wilcoxon, looking as nobly baffled as ever, and Angela Lansburry in a brief role as Delilah's sister, for whom Mature yearns, to the inexplicable despair of Lamarr. The sets are wonderously cheasy. Paramount. Color.
