Directed by Ernest B. Schoedsack and Merian C. Cooper. With Basil Rathbone. The team behind King Kong (including special effects wiz Willis O’Brien) reunited two years later for this lavish historical drama that borrowed the name of the Bulwer-Lytton novel but told a different story: that of a blacksmith turned gladiator whose life intersects with that of Christ.
