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
It is entertaining. Goes beyond the Bible to make for good entertainment, but we must remember most if this stuff isn't Biblical, even if it is entertaining ;)
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.
**1/2 (out of four) The 1950's loved their bible epics and this one is one huge production. In fact it was the years biggest film. But bigger isn't better and the staging is not memorable. Two great actors try and save it. Gregory Oeck stars as David. He is a man of God, but when he gets a looka Bathsheba, played by Susan Hayward, he forgets about his wife and goes after the beauty. Not even Gregory Peck can breathe live into this overlong drivel.
