Format:DVD
This glorious biblical epic by director Cecil B. DeMille with an enormous cast and the splendid production that adds to the spectacle of the story «JUDGES: 13-16» was released in 1949. It won Academy Awards for Best Art Direction Color, and Best Costume Design that year. Unfortunatelly, "This Studio" that pioneered Biblical Spectacles is still not yet releasing a fully restored DVD of this movie, presented in a format preserving the aspect ratio of its original theatrical exhibition that would show in all its grandeur this magnificent action adventure, so dear to all of us.

Hey Viacom/Paramount why do we have to buy bad import copies of this film on the internet, while Time/Warner finds it profitable to re-release "BEN-HUR."

Wake up guys we need this Biblical Classic fully restored and on the shops on DVD before 2006. Lets all films lovers vote here. So we let this studio due what is profitable to them and a thrill to us and history.

1.0 out of 5 stars Samson and Delilah (Cecil B. DeMille) September 22, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very poor color print of this film. Does not show off the original Technicolor photography well at all. Inferior print. Both sound and picture.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not What I Expected April 22, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed when I opened up my newly received DVD of Samson and Delilah thinking that it would be in the rich beautiful color that the original movie was in. Boy was I disappointed. The color was very faint plus I was surprised to see that it has Chinese subtitles. If I knew that it was made in China I would have never purchased the movie. The quality if very poor and fuzzy. I will never order another movie from this distributor again. I feel this was a waste of my money. I will now have to find another distributor who has a copy of this movie that I can buy that is not a Chinese copy, that is an American made copy and of better quality. Buyers beware of this distributor. I believe all their movies are Chinese quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cecil B. DeMille's Biblical Classic on DVD! March 20, 2005
Format:DVD
Everyone is familiar with the Old Testament Bible story of the mighty Samson and the treacherous Delilah, and how the strongman was robbed of his powers once the biblical femme fatale sheared off his locks. This 1949 version is retold in splashy Cecil B. DeMille ( TEN COMMANDMENTS, KING OF KINGS ) style, with Technicolor that practically jumps off the screen and larger-than-life portrayals all around. The gorgeous Hedy Lamarr plays the vindictive Delilah to Victor Mature's Samson. Mature uses his expressive features to full advantage, melting hearts as the vulnerable Samson sans curls.

This import plays wonderfully, both sound and picture. If you like this movie and want it on DVD this may be your only chance to get it in the US.

*VERY RARE IMPORT ALL REGIONS DVD / PLAYS IN THE ORIGINAL ENGLISH LANGUAGE / TURN OPTIONAL CHINESE SUBTITLES ON OR OFF / AWARDS FOR BEST PHOTOGRAPHY, BEST DIRECTOR, BEST COSTUME DESIGN / ADAPTED FROM THE HOLY BIBLE / CECIL B. DEMILLE, VICTOR MATURE, HEDDY LAMARR

4.0 out of 5 stars Samson and Delilah July 4, 2005
Format:DVD
Definitely the best of the Samson and Delilah movies, despite its 1954 special effects which were probably the best studios could do during that era. Hedy Lamar was simply gorgeous and well-suited for the role of a real vixen!
