The first movie ever filmed in CinemaScope, The Robe was nominated for five Academy Awards in 1953, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Richard Burton. Burton stars as Marcellus Gallio, the Roman centurian charged with overseeing the crucifixion. But when he wins Christ's robe in a gambling game at the foot of the cross, his life is forever changed. Its inspired story set to a spectacular score, and featuring an all-star cast, including Victor Mature and Jean Simmons, The Robe remains one of the screen's greatest biblical epics. In color with a running time of approximately 135 minutes. Closed captions.

Elaine NeaceDublin, OhioAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The Robe is ExcellentMay 26, 2015Elaine NeaceDublin, OhioAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Robe was written by Lloyd Douglas and was copyrighted in 1942. Because the message was so dynamic, the movie was made to send the message to a greater audience. I was 12 years old when I first saw it on television and wondered how someone could be so committed to Jesus Christ that they would gladly give their life for their beliefs. It greatly impacted my life then and still does today. I would highly recommend this movie for children and adults.
Sherry5 Stars Out Of 5July 19, 2013SherryQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the original version. I've seen it a few times over the years, and enjoy watching it each time. THE ROBE is not just an Easter movie. It can be watched anytime, and at any age.
DrewSuffolk VAAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5One of my top ten favorite books and movies everApril 12, 2011DrewSuffolk VAAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Lloyd Douglas' book and this movie diverge in many ways, but the movie would have been a mini-series if it had been adapted in its entirety. The movie employs some shorthand but the way it was done is a masterpiece. The focus of both book and movie is redemption and forgiveness as faith, not religion or ritual, making it a rare mainstream Hollywood movie. Marcellus is a man who has gone mad with guilt and self-loathing that was already there before his supervision of the crucifixion. The servant Demetrius demonstrates how forgiveness and redemption transform and heal the twisted sickness of the soul and can free the slave from bondage of flesh and tyranny. Of course some effects (like the miniature of the Roman ship at sea) are cheezy compared to modern CGI, but give them a break - this was 50 years ago! Newman's score is gut-wrenching at times, a powerfully moving exposition all its own - it is also one of my top ten favorite film scores. I am surprised whenever a secular, Hollywood movie really "gets it" in its themes like this. The 135 minutes should not deter you from seeing this from opening to closing titles. See it and see it over again - this is a deeply moving spiritual Christian classic.
K JosephCaliforniaAge: 45-54Gender: male2 Stars Out Of 5Now I know why I had never seen this old "classic"December 23, 2010K JosephCaliforniaAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1Although hailed as one of the great biblical classic movies of the 50's and even with top level actors of the time, this movie falls short of expectations.
I was hoping to discover a missed classic but early on realized the directing or the script had turned this wonderful story into a lame movie. The story line about the roman officer who was in charge of Christ's cruxificion who later becomes a martyr for Him is a wonderful story, but oh my! ... what was Hollywood thinking when they edited this into this final cut? Cheezy and poor dialogue is all I can say. But maybe good for the classics shelf nevertheless if you are building up your library.
Cindy Miller5 Stars Out Of 5November 3, 2008Cindy MillerExcellent movie! Some of the older ones 'are' the better ones! While it isn't necessarily Biblical, it presents a very realistic possibility of what might have happened, and reminds us of the persecution Christians underwent after Christs' death.
