A sprawling. Action-packed epic that sweeps off the pages of the Bible and across the screen recreating one of the most torrid tales of passion ever told, Gregory Peck delivers a commanding performance as David, King of the Israelites, who falls in love with Bathsheba (Susan Hayward), a beautiful woman- and wife of one of his captains. It's a story of sin and redemption, a searing saga of love as burning as the sands of the harsh landscape on which it was consummated. A love that violated the laws of man- and God. David, once the Chosen One, now risks God's wrath, his kingdom, and the life of Bathsheba, who may be stoned to death for his sin!
