The Robe

The first film in CinemaScope (a process spearheaded by Fox), though it was also shot simultaneously in a normal screen ratio. This pious claptrap (1953) about the Roman centurion (Richard Burton) who presided over Christ's crucifixion has Jean Simmons and one of Victor Mature's more likable performances. The unmemorable Henry Koster directed; with Michael Rennie, Richard Boone, Dawn Addams, and Dean Jagger. 135 min.
