Joseph the carpenter brings his wife Mary (McKenna) to Bethlehem where she is given a stall in the stable to deliver her child, Jesus (Hunter). The fate of Pontius Pilate (Torn), the imprisonment of John the Baptist (Ryan), and all the stories of the bible are captured in "King Of Kings," a Biblical epic by director Nicholas Ray. (Tricia Littrell)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD offers a very nicely restored picture that looks great for the film
Reason #63 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I am an older guy who had not bought any A/V equipment for the last 14 years. I was really out of the loop as to what was happening. Did not even own a DVD player until now. This summer, my wife and I decided to build a small home theatre in our basement. Widescreen Review has been an invaluable research partner. The room was completed in mid September and now Widescreen Review can really show its stuff. The extensive DVD reviews are the final word for us when picking movies to watch. The news and equipment reviews keep us current, as we start down the never-ending path of upgrade-itis. Thanks for a great magazine.
