King of Kings (1961) Nicholas Ray, Jeffrey Hunter, Siobhan McKenna, Hurd Hatfield

King of Kings (1961)
The story of the life of Jesus Christ from his birth in Bethlehem to his crucifixion and subsequent resurrection. Filmed on a relatively grand scale, the film includes all of the major events referred to in the New Testament; his baptism by John the Baptist; the miracles – cripples walking, blind men seeing; the fishes and the loaves; and so on. The film actually begins with the Roman invasion by Pompey in 65 B.C., the appointment of King Herod the Great by the Romans and finally the crowning of Herod Antipas after he murders his father. The revolt led by Barrabas is also included and John the Baptist’s beheading as Salome’s price for dancing for Herod.

A recent screening of “King of Kings” at New York’s Museum of Modern Art (Gramercy Theater) proved the durability of this production. A sizable group of people were prepared to titter or howl at what they thought would be another mindless Biblical epic – instead, they were quickly absorbed and attentive to the film’s virtues: its reverence, economy, visual beauty, and especially Jeffrey Hunter’s quietly commanding Christ. Yes, this is still the good film based on the New Testament (with some subtle and searching script additions). Thanks still go to Nicholas Ray for his tactful, expert handling of a timeless story.

Also Known As (AKA): König der Könige, Rey de reyes, Le roi des rois, Il re dei re, Rei dos Reis
