The Biblical story of Noah and the Great Flood, with a parallel story of soldiers in the First World War.
Thirty-five ambulances were called to treat the wounded in the aftermath of the flood scene.
You can't do this Al. Listen, ol' fellow, you can't go without me. You haven't forgotten. We promised to stick together.
Al: The only way we can stick together, Travis, is for you to go my way.
During the flood sequence (1 hr. 29 min. approx.) Japheth (George O'Brien) is clearly repeatedly calling/mouthing "Maria" as he searches for Dolores Costello. Her name in the Biblical sequence is MIRIAM. (And even in the WW1 story, she is named Marie (Not Maria !).)
This premiered at 135 minutes, then was immediately cut for subsequent roadshow engagements, and then the "popular" run. Over 30 minutes of footage was taken out, including all the talking scenes involving Noah. This version was 11-reels in length(about 102 minutes). Producer Robert Youngson supervised a 1957 re-release, eliminating all talking sequences and inserting a narration. This version is 75 minutes long.
