Fact-based story about the second and ideal king of Isreal, David. In this movie, we follow David's story from the time he was a young shepherd to his death as king. Along the journey of his life we see his accomplishments, his struggles, and his sins. Also, how he repented and how his humility brought him to peace with his sins and his conscience. Written by
This depiction of the life of King David is really live and down in heart.I liked the way God's hebrew name,Yahweh, was used through out the picture even though it would of been better if it would of been pronounced in English "Jehovah" like in "Solomon and Sheba(1959)", "The Story of Ruth", & "Sodom and Gomorrah". Anthony Quayle's performance of a jealous Saul was superb and Jane Seymour was totally sexy and breathtaking as King David's neighbor and future wife Bathsheba.Michaelangelo's representation of David was an original idea. My hat goes off to the producers and to Keith Michell.Anybody who wants to see this movie should also see "King David(1985)"
