This fanciful, yet moving, Bible-based epic portrays the life and times of Barabbas (Anthony Quinn), the thief whose life was spared through the machinations of Pontius Pilate (Arthur Kennedy), who wanted to see Jesus crucified instead. In the years following that fateful moment, Barabbas not only achieves victories as a gladiator but comes to be inspired by the followers of the man put to death in his place. Silvana Mangano, Ernest Borgnine, and Jack Palance co-star. 137 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital Surround; Subtitles: English, French, Portuguese, Spanish; theatrical trailer.
