Movie Info

Samson (Victor Mature), the hero of the Israelites, wins the hand of a Philistine woman, Semadar (Angela Lansbury), in a contest of strength. When she is killed during a conflict on her wedding night, however, Samson becomes a hunted man whom the Philistines, including Semadar's sister, Delilah (Hedy Lamarr), want to punish. This becomes complicated, however, when Samson suddenly acquires God-given superpowers, and Delilah's true feelings for Samson surface.

    Victor Mature is terrible in this ridiculous testosterone fest that feels completely dated now, with a protagonist so misogynistic and women portrayed in the worst way possible, which makes me wonder why we are supposed to admire such a brute (chosen by the "Lord," no less) in the first place.

    Good Biblical effort.

    DeMille is like a circus programmer, always thinking about what the yokels might squeeze the moolah out for and then working to give 'em just that. And here is a great example of his brain at work (you can practically feel it working!) every scene prepared like a Halloween funhouse meant to rouse you from whatever ails you. Be it with action, or eye candy, or music, or lighting, this knucklehead guy really bends over backwards to please, to justify your money. Oh, and there's some Bible story too. The story very nearly stalls only when that its a Biblical tale is trotted out. George Sanders, underappreciated character actor, very nearly steals the whole film.
