Reviews

Journey through time to a gloriously extravagant Biblical setting of lust, violence, and betrayal in this meticulously restored Oscar-winning classic from legendary filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille. Victor Mature flexes his muscles through such scenes as Samson's barehanded battle with a lion, a single-handed assault on a thousand Philistine soldiers and the spectacular climax where he pulls down the pagan temple. All that action makes the picture exciting. But it's the seductive lady with the scissors, inimitably played by Hedy Lamarr that truly makes it great entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Samson and Delilah in a superb restoration 4 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD is fantastic in the glorious restoration that presents all the majesty and sumptuous costumes in vivid detail .
Despite all the criticism levelled at this film as pure cheese camp and hokum I still have great fondness for this Cecil.B.DeMille masterpiece .
Victor Mature fills the screen as the archetypal Samson with braggadocio ,humour and despair but the beautiful Hedy Lamarr is the true star in the film with flashing blue green eyes that twinkle with vixenish mischief or broken hearted in tears at the self torturing guilt of her part in her beloved Samson's downfall
George Sanders is imperious and awe inspiring as the Saran of Gaza using his rich incisive voice beautifully and with menace also splendid is DeMille stalwart Henry Wilcoxon as the evil and jealous warrior Prince Ahtur .
The film is great as a study of a brilliant directors dedication in the twilight of a glorious career still pains taking and skilled at composition editing and astounding cinematic craftsmanship .
Would so have loved a commentary and a few other extra bonuses but maybe the cost of the restoration negated this option ?

5.0 out of 5 stars Samson And Delilah 18 July 2007
Format:VHS Tape
Brillant, Fantastic Great film to watch from the biblical era, when will someone release this classic on DVD it is nearly 60 Years Old and I am sure this will sell by the cart load. Victor Mature and Hedy Lamarr are on top form they give a real sense of meaning how acting should operate.

Somebody should pull their finger out Now and get this DVD release?

This is worth more than 5 Stars and is up there with Ben Hur.

2.0 out of 5 stars Samson & delilah DVD 10 Nov 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Chinese subtitles on the outer main sleeve of this DVD release immediately make you realise that this DVD isn't going to be of the best quality, and you'll be right! Looks as if this could be an NTSC 'off-air' recording which has been badly transferred to DVD. AND the Paramount Pictures logo at the front of the movie is missing, so there might be copyright infringment issues going on .

But as this movie has never had a DVD release in the UK then beggars cannot be chosers. At least it was cheap and it arrived on time !!

You get what you pay for !

1.0 out of 5 stars Samson snd Delilah 7 Aug 2011
Format:DVD
This video is by far the worst copy i have ever seen, the sound is so bad that even with full volume you still cant hear it. And the picture is bad as well, I was looking forward to getting this DVD as it is one of my favorite films not to mention the fact that my late father was an exact double of Victor Mature. I cant understand why all the other reviews did not mention the bad sound and picture. What ever you do, do not waste £10 plus postage and packing on this video

This is Cecil B. DeMille at his best doing biblical pictures. He spent too much time in the forties doing period dramas rather than biblical films. Hedy Lamarr is at her best. Read more
