Directed by
Henry King

In the 50s, Hollywood developed a penchant for biblical tales, including King of Kings, The Ten Commandments and Quo Vadis. Henry King's film deserves to rank alongside them, with Gregory Peck as King David and Susan Hayward as the beautiful Bathsheba, for whose adulterous love David risks his throne, country and even the wrath of God. Told in occasional flashback, the film sees him conquer Goliath and lead his armies to victory before the prophet Nathan brings the word of Jehovah and His judgement, when David atones for his sins.
