David and Goliath (1960) Rated NR

King Saul learns that war with the Philistines is inevitable, and David, the shepherd boy, will be King. Starring Orson Welles, Ivica Pajer, and Eleonora Rossi Drago.

This movie is poorly produced. However, Welles, who plays King Saul, is enjoyable to watch. Ivo Pajer, who plays David, looks older than the teen David of the story, but he’s still enjoyable to watch. The script does expand on the life of David; although, the story tends to follow Saul a little more than David. The film is not a good telling of the amazing story of David’s life and how he overcame the giant, Goliath. I thought the cinematography was good, and with Welles’ acting and Pajer’s good looks, the film was passable – but still not worth a watch.
