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 TV movie about King David may seem long,but it really shows in a vivid way David's transition from a mere shepherd boy to a great political figure and biblical icon.I liked the way the cast mentioned there faith in Yahweh.Keith Michell's portrayal of King David seemed realistic,especially in the scene where he was condemning Joab's murder of Abner.If we compare this film with the 1997 TV film of David by Lux Vide, both have great depictions of David's life. Anthony Quayle did a impressive performance as Saul.Too bad this film is only available on VHS. Let's hope that soon it can be restored or available on DVD.My hat goes of to Alex Segal and Lowell Rich for there project.
