Critic Reviews for The Prodigal
Audience Reviews for The Prodigal
Well appointed but plodding biblical spectacle with Lana looking beautiful in some eye popping and for the period very revealing costumes. A high quality cast is trapped in this junior league Sunday school lesson. Still if you're a fan of "The Robe", "The Ten Commandments" and so forth then there are things to enjoy herein.
Opulent, high-budget film based on the biblical tale "The Prodigal Son" is basically a vehicle for Lana Turner to strut her stuff. Worth seeing for its camp value and the fight with the rubber mechanical vulture at the end.
