Beautiful restoration of a favorite film  Mar 8, 2007
I remember what a thrill it was to see, hear, and experience the first CinimaScope production when it was first shown in theatres. The Alfred Newman music became a best selling LP, and I had to have it. Now, with this DVD, and my new HD TV (and surround sound) the experience is even better. The picture quality if far better than we had with the original movie. The colors are so vivid, the picture so sharp, it's almost like 3D. It is still a great picture, greatly enhanced with today's technology. Just a beautiful thing to see and hear again.
Garment Provides Another Point-of-View  Mar 7, 2007
(2 1/2 *'s) `The Robe' is a decent grasp at the repercussions of the life and death of Jesus. With grand scenery that reenacts scenes from Jerusalem and Rome, the film is a pius effort and an admirable interpretation. However, the second rate acting and many languid moments don't save the truly touching scenes that mark the movie's highlights. Even Richard Burton's performance doesn't add much this time around. The scenery is either magnificent or reminds the audience too often that the film is a stage performance.

Taking place during the last week of Jesus's life and just beyond the grave, the film focuses on Marcellus (Burton) who becomes the pivotal tribunal and crucifixion participant. Marcellus obtains Jesus's famous robe from dice with fellow Roman soldiers. Having obtained a Roman slave, Demetrius (Victor Mature), Marcellus finds a catalyst to a new faith, started by what the Romans believe is a cult from a carpenter. While Jesus is the mysterious center of the drama making a visible and audible appearance that is partly shrouded, the changes in Marcellus's life take center stage for the story. The robe is the cause of much dread and guilt through which Marcellus must wrestle.

Despite it's weaknesses, many believers may find the movie food for the soul.
The Robe  Feb 15, 2007
A good old-fashioned epic with three exceptional performers of a by-gone era - Burton, Simmons, and Mature. THE ROBE has always been a favorite of mine - even more so now that I am a Born-Again Christian. I watched this movie almost yearly when I was younger. At 55 years old now, THE ROBE does not seem dated to me nor is its original message of salvation through faith lost on me nor my family. Although some of the story (including the love relationship between Burton and Simmons) is fictionalized, this movie (with its "true to life" Biblical references) is still a bright star amongst the constellation of "religious epics" of the 50's and 60's!!!
Lloyd C. Douglas Novel becomes Pious Spectacular Movie  Feb 14, 2007
This movie, based on the bestseller "The Robe" by Lloyd C. Douglas is a colorful and pious picture that reflects the respect that 1953 America had for Christian themed movies of the era. In this epic, the Messiah is always at at distance, yet his activity in Jerusalem changes the lives of a Tribune who crucified him, a slave who saw him pass on his entry into the city, and has indirect influences back in Rome with the Tribune's family and the woman he loves. By far the best performance is by Jay Robinson as Caligula. His manic portrayal is perhaps the most memorable aspect of the picture. Victor Mature is also excellent as the slave of Tribune Gallio, who accompanies him through his travels through the empire. Beginning as enemies, where even "a friend cannot be bought sir, even for 3,000 pieces of gold" as Demetrius so aptly puts it. The Tribune and the Slave are eventually united by their Christian beliefs. The color of this film is excellent. Costumes and sets are fascinating. The film score, by Henry Neuman is haunting and memorable and was good enough in the old days to have been issued into a fairly decent selling LP. In some parts it is somewhat campy but at least it is honest. The slave market in the beginning is almost comical. Richard Burton is somewhat out of it as a crazed lunatic when he believes he was bewitched by the Robe of Christ. His attempt to destroy it over a fire leads him to eventual redemption, released of guilt at having crucified him by confession to Peter the Apostle (well played by Michael Rennie). There is also a good vision scene of Christ being nailed to the cross in a dream sequence while Burton is haunted in his sleep. "Were you out there?" becomes a memorable quote. All in all, it was an impressive picture that sold a lot of tickets. It did so well that a rare sequel was made back in the days when Hollywood frowned on sequels. Demetrius and the Gladiators is a decent continuation of some of the characters and should be seen along with this epic. Based on "The Big Fisherman" by Lloyd C. Douglas once again, the film tells us what becomes of Demetrius after Tribune Gallio sacrifices himself to allow him to escape, who, as the Tribune says "I owe more than my life". A good and safe picture, the DVD transfer is nicely cleaned up and sharpened. Well recommended, especially at Easter time in the Church calendar.
The Robe  Feb 11, 2007
I remember this great movie when I was little. It is the same exciting flick now as it was then. I especially like the ending when the Roman emporer is going off on them!
