The music quickly becomes monotonous, and the operatic dialogue is silly right from the start.

If it weren't for Lost Horizon, this would have gone down in history as the Worst Musical of 1973.

Yvonne Elliman is electrifying as Mary Magdalene, and Carl Anderson couldn't have been better as Judas; but Ted Neeley as Jesus is more whiny than heroic.

Jewison, a director of large talent, has taken a piece of commercial shlock and turned it into a Biblical movie with dignity.
