...the movie attempts to make a grand splash. Unhappily, the splash is more like a belly flop.

Admittedly dull, overlong and kitschy, the film was dismissed as embarrassing debut for Paul Newman, yet a closer look shows the attributes that would make him a mega-star.

Like the Thomas B. Costain book, the picture is overdrawn and sometimes tedious, but producer-director Victor Saville still manages to instill interest in what's going on, and even hits a feeling of excitement occasionally.

Paul Newman's most despised movie (by himself especially) is pretty bad.

Though it is lavish and sweeping in execution, The Silver Chalice, for all of its august and religious aspects, is not an imposing offering.

Dreadful epic noteworthy mainly for being Newman's feature debut.
