When Roman tribune Marcellus Gallio (Richard Burton) is sent to Jerusalem, one of his assignments is the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Marcellus, a cynical and hardened man, wins the robe Jesus wore to the crucifixion while gambling with other Roman soldiers underneath the dying savior. He later becomes convinced that his hallucinations and violent outbursts are the result of a curse received from the robe, which is now in the possession of his escaped slave, Demetrius (Victor Mature), somewhere in the Middle East. He sets out to find Demetrius in order to destroy the robe and the curse and finds faith instead, converting to Christianity. This was the first movie to be filmed in CinemaScope, and won Oscars in 1953 for costume design, art direction, and set decoration. The visual aspects of the film are stunning, and it may be worth viewing for that alone; however, the script and acting leave much to be desired, and you won't find inspiration in these areas if that's what interests you. If, however, you are more interested in this film for its religious matter, the story of the conversion of the hardened Marcellus is inspiring. --James McGrath

Historically inaccurate film about early Christianity  Mar 10, 2008
"The Robe" is a movie I would not recommend purchasing or watching whether you are wanting to see it because of the Christian theme or because you love good, classical films. From a historical standpoint, this movie is almost entirely false. It portrays the persecution of early Christians as being led by Rome and especially by the Emperor Caligula. Unlike Mel Gibson in his "Passion of the Christ," this movie does not show the complex relationships that led to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It basically simplifies the issue by making it seem that all persecution of Jesus and the Christians came from the Romans. This of course is in opposition to the Acts of the Apostles which showed that the initial persecution was from the Sanhedrin and those loyal to it such as Saul (later Saint Paul). The Roman emperors did not bother much with Christians until the Emperor Nero (who succeeded Tiberius, Caligula and Claudius). The Emperors Tiberius and Caligula were wicked and depraved human beings, but they did not persecute Christians. That is a historical fact.

Film-wise this movie is boring and poorly acted. Yes, there is Richard Burton, but he cannot save the movie from bad directing and simply a horrible script. I love classical movies, but I had trouble finishing this movie without falling asleep.
Great movie - lousie picture  Feb 9, 2008
I do not understand why 20th Century would put out this DVD. Th Robe was the first released CinemaScope movie. I remember sitting in the theater and being in awe of the widescreen picture. So, why doesn't 20th Century Fox restore this movie. This DVD is terrible. The sky looks like many more stars due to all the drop-outs in the film. The picture is fuzzy, the sound distorted. They must have a better print in their vaults.

I'm only speaking of this edition. I have not seen any other ones.
