5 Academy Award Nominations

"A magnificent film, handled with reverence, artistic appreciation, and admirable restraint." (New York Daily News), The Greatest Story Ever Told is an inspiring, grand scale re-creation of the life of Jesus of Nazareth, from His humble birth and teachings to His crucifixion and ultimate Resurrection.

Lavishly produced at a cost of $20 million, an enormous amount for the time (1965) --and honored with 5 Academy Award nominations (including Cinematography and Special Visual Effects), this exceptional motion picture is "...exquisitely beautiful.  It is at once the most spectacular and artistic Biblical film yet made (Dallas Times Herald).
