Notebook Reviews: THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD

4.5 out of 5 stars

George Stevens – 1965

Based on the international bestselling book (The Bible!), The Greatest Story Ever Told is a glorious retelling of the life of Jesus Christ from director George Stevens.

This 1965 biblical epic is loaded with a stacked cast that includes  Max von Sydow, David McCallum, Telly Savalas, Charlton Heston, Angela Lansbury, Sidney Poitier and John Wayne. The Greatest Story Every Told is huge in scale with some seriously sumptuous visuals – the thing looks like a painting. See it on the biggest screen possible.
