Rotten: Important historically as the first CinemaScope feature film.
- Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews, Monday, July 19, 2010
35 percent on the tomato meter? You seriously got to be kidding me...I honestly felt "The Robe" was a fascinating picture and a great performance by Richard Burton. It's a spiritual picture tracing back to the days of the Romans to the crucifixon of Jesus. There is hardly any religious films made today but films like "The Robe" made me appreciate sprituality more. The Burton character is a man with authority who is true to the Roman Empire, buys and befriends a dangerous slave, wins Jesus robe in a dice game then becomes ill in the mind, gradually changes from a non believer to a born again Christian. I wish the film industry made more biblical pictures today. A film like "The Robe" which was the first shown in CinemaScope should not be forgotten. *Jay Robinson was great as the vile tyrant Caligula
