After looking for this film for decades I find it and sad to say for me is not dubbed and my Italian is non-existent. Fortunately this is certainly a story quite well known and I could follow it in any event.

Playing the title role of Pontius Pilate is French screen legend Jean Marais and his wife is played by American expatriate Jeanne Crain. The story is told in flashback as Pilate is before the Emperor and the Roman Senate giving an account of that most troublesome of provinces Judea which they can't quite get a hold on.

Such as it seemed the plot followed along the same path of King Of Kings which starred Jeffrey Hunter the year before. Of course told from the occupying Roman point of view. Marais having been joined by Crain and their two kids has wife and kids somewhat taken with the preachings of that carpenter turned rabbi from Nazareth.

No need go into the rest, it can be found in the New Testament in four different versions. Basil Rathbone who was born in Johannesburg, South Africa plays Caiaphas and I really missed hearing that one of a kind voice as he is dubbed in Italian. John Drew Barrymore plays both Jesus and is one bug eyed Judas.

Hopefully we Americans will get an English dubbed version to watch soon.
