In this glorious biblical epic scripted by Anthony Veiller, Paul Dudley and George Bruce, director King Vidor (War and Peace) cinematically explores the evils of flesh and pagan worship, creating "an eye-compelling film which...should entertain millions" (Variety). Shot in Spain, the picture chronicles the exploits of its larger-than-life characters. Yul Brynner is a strong and idealistic Solomon. And the sensual Gina Lollobrigida is magnificent as the sultry and seductive Sheba. A clash between King Solomon and his brother is further complicated when the Queen of Sheba seduces Solomon in an attempt to bring about Israel's downfall. The film is a spectacular and humbling statement -- beautiful to watch and worthwhile to remember.
