Critic Reviews for David and Bathsheba
A reverential and sometimes majestic treatment of chronicles that have lived three millenia...In concerning itself with an ageless romance, "David and Bathsheba" admirably achieves its goal.
Entertaining less as a Bibilical epic than as an epic exercise in extreme camp.
Typical lavish Hollywood Biblical treatment, but awash with juice, thanks to the force supplied by the three leads.
Audience Reviews for David and Bathsheba
A classic story performed by classic actors, Peck and Hayward do a good job in this movie, even though there are many boring scenes, the story and acting are good.
The holes in Holy Scripture are left up to interpretation. What were the character's motivations for their crimes? How did the events of the Bible play out? The interpretation in this movie is by far interesting. A take that I did not consider. It's a good piece of art that does not conflict with the Bible. It even quotes the Psalms several times. I enjoyed it. Plus, Gregory Peck is muy caliente!
