Synopsis by Mark Deming
This historical epic from Italy tells the stories of two of the most memorable figures in the Old Testament. Gideon (Ivo Garrani) saves the children of Israel when, under God's command, he defeats the Midianites by destroying the altar of Baal. In the second half of the film, Sampson (Anton Geesink) is the most physically powerful man in the world -- until he falls prey to the allure of the wily Delilah (Rosalba Neri). Fernando Rey highlights the supporting cast.
