Reverential, intelligent treatment, well-acted...great Rozsa score...
Superb production values and solid, sincere performances make this a worthwhile epic. Jeffrey Hunter, Robert Ryan, Viveca Lindfors and Hurd Hatfield are excellent under Nicholas Ray's direction.

Only a bit slow-moving with flaws but the overall impression is impressive and very reverential. Well worth viewing for the performances alone.

Not one of Rozsa's greatest scores but it has some lovely major themes. Frank Thring is outstanding among the supporting players. Hurd Hatfield is especially convincing as Pontius Pilate. It's probably his most impressive work after Dorian Gray. Robert Ryan makes a very credible John the Baptist. Jeffrey Hunter is persuasive all the way--and sincere--as Jesus of Nazareth.
