Yul Brenner is so gorgeous and he had such a deeeeeep voice! He was the greatest Ann Baxter is actually wearing a see-through gown! Can't believe it Anyway, Ms. Lin, your review makes me want to see this production, though it's hard to imagine anyone coming close to Jesse Norman as Delilah.
That initial showing on ABC was a huge television event. I was a very religious kid, from a traditional family, and my parents had been fans of the film upon its initial release, so I watched that first screening, and every subsequent one, every year for at least a decade. Its annual advent was like that of The Wizard of Oz and all the Christmas specials, a highly anticipated holiday experience, and as we wrote here and here , it became one of my favorite movies. I recently came across the TV Guide item hyping that original screening , prompting this post:. I expressed my thoughts on that glib, superficial formulation recently in this post. The People love this movie. It remains the seventh highest grossing film of all time, adjusted for inflation.
This is also my first time watching this movie on HD flat-screen, and Anne Baxter's nipples make me think The dividing of the Red Sea scene was absolutely spectacular, especially for the day. However, the burning bush scene was totally unremarkable and the movie itself tediously too long.
