A 1952 RKO Radio Pictures version of the G.B. Shaw play. Beautiful black-&-white film, immaculate sets, a combination of high and low brow, Jean Simmons showing off her breasts through a sheer white toga while embracing sacrifice to the lions in order to achieve union with her Christian God. Victor Mature making bedroom eyes. A fascinating look at the popular love affair with fairy tales in the 1950s.
