    Ferdy on Films on King of Kings

    Just a quick post to link to an article by Ferdy on Films about King of Kings (1961). As I've mentioned before, its one of my Top Ten Jesus Films, though I recognise it's one of least defensible movies on the list. Anyway, one of Ferdy' more interesting observations is the comparison netween this film's Jesus / Barabbas, and Martin Luther King / Malcolm X. It's a very apt comparison. Incidentally I also stumbled across a photo collection for this film which includes the one above and the screenshot where we see Jesus' shaven armpits.

      Speaking of Luther you may be interested in this Martin Luther 1953 directed by the same man who made Day of Triumph
