Cecil B. DeMille’s interpretation of the Crusades is—as usual—visually stunning if not 100% historically accurate.

In this thundering epic, England’s King Richard “the Lionhearted” (Henry Wilcoxon) leads a pan-European response to the violent takeover of Jerusalem by the warrior Saladin (Ian Keith). Also with Loretta Young and C. Aubrey Smith. (125 mins., 35mm)
