King of kings by Nicholas Ray( visu )
3 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This is the Biblical epic that Time misrepresented as "I am a Teenage Jesus". In fact, the film reduces the conventional pieties of a Hollywood 'life of Christ' to a minimum. The script concentrates on speculation about the political context of Christ's ministry - Jewish rebellion against the power of Rome - with Barabbas as an early Zionist. The film achieves a sense of historical movement - people placed in relation to wider forces to a degree unusual in the genre. Ray and the second unit that filmed some of the action scenes effectively deploy the widescreen both for the dramatically enclosed scenes and those on a larger scale

The epic story of the 11th-century Spanish hero Rodrigo Diaz de Bivar, better known as El Cid. Eleventh-century Spain is divided into Christian kingdoms and Moorish strongholds. The young Rodrigo Diaz de Bivar, who has been dubbed El Cid by his followers, vows to see his country at peace, free from the invader. Showing clemency to some emirs, he faces treason charges at court. His accuser, Gomez, father of his fiancee, Chimene, dies in the resulting duel. Chimene's avowed vengeance plot fails and Rodrigo is given her hand. When King Ferdinand dies, his kingdom is divided between his three children. Sancho challenges the decision and imprisons Alfonso, who is released by El Cid. Then Sancho is assassinated by an African war-lord. Alfonso now claims that throne, too, and exiles El Cid. Chimene realizes the nobility of her husband and joins him. The years pass and El Cid becomes a revered warrior, but refuses to aid Alfonso. He lays siege to Valencia, catapulting food into its starving garrison. The Valencians kill their evil ruler and offer the crown to El Cid. He sends it to Alfonso, who rushes to his side. But El Cid has been hit by a stray arrow. Attended by Chimene, he hides the wound from his men and prepares a final bid to drive the Moors from Spain
