The first movie ever filmed in Cinemascope, The Robe was nominated for five Academy Awards® in 1953, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Richard Burton.

Its inspired story set to a spectacular score, and featuring an all-star cast, including Victor Mature and Jean Simmons, The Robe remains one of the screen's greatest biblical epics.
