What I am excited by is the release of David and Bathsheba (1951) which I've never actually seen. It's one of the Films that Babington and Evans discuss at length in "Biblical Epics", plus it stars Gregory Peck who is one of my favourite actors. (Just the other night my wife and I were watching him in Big Country (1958) which is the film, linking these two DVDs as it also stars Charlton Heston). From a timing point of view having recently watched one of the earliest David films, I'm keen to see what one of the most famous is actually like.
By the way, the review of Jesus will either appear later today, or more likely on Monday.
