Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

^I watched the first 45 minutes and then decided to let the DVR handle the rest. Price is always fun, and after having heard various impressions of Ronald Colman over the years it's interesting to see the genuine article. But it's pretty awful overall. It's the kind of thing you'd only expect to see these days on a religious channel, since it's so blatant in equating Christian piety with goodness and superimposing a Judeo-Christian framework on historical events that had nothing to do with it, like the building of Khufu's pyramid. And the villains, figures like Cleopatra and Nero, are so one-dimensionally evil.
