King of Kings

About

DeMille dives into the Bible to find another silent epic with which to astonish his audience, this time recounting the story of Christ. When Judas Iscariot refuses to attend Mary Magdalene's decadent orgy, she loses her cool (though God knows, she's wearing little enough to keep warm in) and decides to investigate the Jesus phenomenon. As a disciple she witnesses the frenzy of the crowds, the trial, the crucifixion and the resurrection.
