‘The Bible….in the Beginning’ (1966)
The greatest stories of The Old Testament are brought to the screen with astounding scope and power in this international film which depicts the first 22 chapters of Genesis. It starts with the very beginning of the world and the creation of man before addressing Noah and the Ark, the tower of Babel, and the life of Abraham. This is the spectacular story of man’s creation, his fall, his survival, and his indomitable faith in the future. Matching the epic scale of the production are performances by George C. Scott as Abraham, Ava Gardner as Sarah and Peter O’Toole as the haunting presence of the Angel of God. The legendary John Huston directs and delivers a commanding performance as Noah. From the film’s opening amidst cosmic chaos, to its lingering message of hope and salvation, ‘The Bible’ stands as a monumental motion picture achievement.
