The Boy and the Giant

The outdoor scenes for this sword-and-sandal adventure were filmed near Jerusalem and in Croatia, where the actor playing David was from. The studio shots were done at the Amato Studios in Rome.

Only King Saul, played by Orson Welles, and the Prophet Samuel, played by Hilton Edwards, were English speaking, and the rest of the characters in the U.S. version had English dubbed voices. The dialogue is in 'King James English,' and although this might slow you down a bit in the understanding, the plot is a good one and will keep you enchanted until the end

The producers introduced several side stories and characters that are not mentioned in the Bible story, but the overall storyline is very accurate. The producers did not have a blockbuster film budget, but watching Orson Welles as King Saul is fascinating, and the story a very pleasant way to spend an idle hour or so with actors from the 1960’s. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
