Samson and Delilah

Friday November 8, 2019, 8pm

Directed by Cecil B. DeMille 1949, 2h, 11 min.

Inspired by the dramatic narratives in Early Rubens, we bring you the biggest, best, endless battle and tunic-filled, pre-CGI epics from across the ages.

Starring Victor Mature as Biblical strongman Samson and Hedy Lamarr as the Bible’s most infamous vixen Delilah, Samson and Delilah revived the old-time religion of spectacle, stars and sex perfected by DeMille in the 1920s. Featuring a stuffed lion and surprisingly bouncy collapsing temple stones, this 1949 film offers a compellingly over the top take on the story of Samson from the Bible's book of Judges.
