Adapted from Eric Linkletter’s
book Husband of Delilah
and inspired by the Old Testament, Samson and Delilah
is the original epic tale of power, persuasion and love’s ultimate betrayal during the late 11th
When Hebrew strong man Samson (Antony Hamilton, Fatal Instinct) is charged with the mighty responsibility of safeguarding his fellow Hebrews from the interminable persecution of the Philistines, he comes to the attention of conniving Philistine beauty Delilah (Belinda Bauer, Robocop 2).
Entranced by her amorous ways yet oblivious to her evil intent, Samson allows Delilah to discover the true source of his almighty strength. Robbed of his long flowing hair, Samson is transformed into a shadow of the hero he once was – an enslaved object of Philistine ridicule. His remarkable story of redemption and tireless struggle for power is as engrossing as it is inspirational.
Featuring a stellar cast, including Max Von Sydow, Victor Mature, José Ferrer and a suitably rousing score from Oscar® winner Maurice Jarre (Lawrence Of Arabia).
