DJG's Movie Morning Monday

The King of Kings * * * * *
Directed by: Cecil B. DeMille / 1927

Easter-appropriate, “The King of Kings” should be the epic Cecil B. DeMille movie shown on network television this time every year. “The Ten Commandments” gets the spotlight, but it’s DeMille’s silent Christian film that needs to be resurrected to the masses. Okay, I’m trying hard not to pun this thing up, but it’s hard! People, see “The King of Kings”! And no, it’s not related to “The King of Queens” television show…this is a classic, well-crafted movie documenting the last weeks of Jesus! AMEN! -djg

Reel Roots: “The Ten Commandments”, “The Passion of the Christ”, “Jesus Christ Superstar”, “The Passion of Joan of Arc”, “Jesus of Nazareth”, “The Last Temptation of Christ”…
