Hill Number One (1951) Rated NR

Hill Number One

The Easter story is told through the eyes of a US Army company in Korea during the Korean War.  Part of the religious Family Theater anthology. Starring Patrick Peyton, Gordon Oliver, Todd Karns, Roddy McDowall, Joan Leslie, James Dean, Ruth Hussey, Leif Erickson

This film is most notable as James Dean’s first film in which he portrays the apostle John. The is a low budget movie, but the simplicity of the story is great. It does a solid job of following the story of the days leading up to Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection. It did seem a little odd to have the story told through the perspective of the US Army, though.  Although it’s not the best concept, the story of Jesus is well done, making it worth a watch.
