This is a movie about the life of Israel's king David.
Did You Know?
The movie was nominated for a Golden Raspberry award at the 6th annual ceremony in 1985. Richard Gere
was nominated for Worst Actor but did not win. Surprisingly, with the film's critical and commercial failure, the picture was not nominated for any more Razzies such as Worst Picture or Worst Director. See more
The "Star of David" on the shields and military standards is inaccurate. The symbol only came into common usage as a religious/national symbol many decades later. (Some believe during the middle ages)
Assuming that this symbol represents David, as the name suggests, this would not be an Israelite symbol until the time of David's Kingship. This is out of place during the reign of King Saul. See more
The king cannot speak with you now. He is engaged in the affairs of state.
Since when have the affairs of state taken precedence over the affairs of God?
[shoves his way past and enters Saul's throne room
...Samuel. We welcome you. With God's blessing, our victory is complete.
Is THIS how you show Him your gratitude... by robbing the Amalekites of their women and cattle? By holding their king in chains?
We were discussing a possible treaty. The king is to be ransomed...
