This 1951 Biblical epic stars Robert Taylor as the Legion commander whose love for a Christian slave girl (Deborah Kerr) crosses the divide between Empire and a sect with a higher loyalty. Presiding over all is Nero (Peter Ustinov). He is Caesar, madman, murderer -- an imperial ruler of the spectacular, and spectacularly doomed, glory that was Rome. A two-disc special edition set.
The first movie ever filmed in CinemaScope, THE ROBE was nominated for five Academy Awards in 1953, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Richard Burton. Burton stars as Marcellus Galilo, the Roman centurian charged with overseeing the crucifixion. But when he wins Christ's robe in a gambling game at the foot of the cross, his life is forever changed.
This set of two DVDs includes the Biblical dramas The Story of Jacob and Joseph and The Story of David.

While they consistently give their best on the job, they quickly discover that their children are beginning to drift further away from them. When tragedy hits home, these men are left with a newfound urgency to renew their faith in order to become closer to their children.
