Religious Drama

Kingdom Of Heaven

Orlando Bloom

Sometimes politics and religion don't go well but here it does. I love the cast and the scenery is on par with the best of desert films.  The film itself leaves many unanswered tedious nitpicking questions if you have seen it enough times, but to me they can be overlooked

El Cid

Charlton Heston, Sophia Loren

The battle scenes may have been a bit too long but an excellent epic film

The Greatest Story Ever Told

Max von Sydow, & nearly everyone else in Hollywood at the time :)

Aside from the somber story line the filming was grim, adding to the atmosphere.  Very well acted

Barabbas

Anthony Quinn, Silvana Mangano

Great story line, very well filmed and acted.  Excellent time piece

The Robe

Richard Burton, Jean Simmons, Victor Mature

This and Demetrius have been 2 of my favorites for as long as I can remember.  The colors, the spectacle.  I think the stories themselves are good as well.  They are both one of those that could have happened

Demetrius And The Gladiators

Victor Mature, Susan Hayward

See above, of the 2 though I think this is my favorite.  If I HAD to choose
