After his wife is murdered, Persian King Ahasuerus (Richard Egan) chooses Esther (Joan Collins), a Jewish woman, to be his bride. But Esther faces a severe test when she and other Jews are required to renounce their faith. Based on the Old Testament, this epic recreates the tale which is the basis for Purim.
Reason of the public domain status: Registered in the year it was made but not renewed with the Library of Congress.
Just over a decade before she would gain fame and some fortune as Alexis Carrington in television’s Dynasty series, Joan Collins starred as Esther in this melodramatic, routine Biblical story. The setting is Persia in the 4th century BC, as Esther comes to the attention of the recently widowed King Ahasuerus. The king has been trying to stifle and defeat the campaign of hatred fomented against the Jews by his evil minister Haman (Sergio Fantoni). Before the King can pair off with Esther and defeat the villainous Haman, there are several intervening adventures and an additional, attractive woman who competes for attention.
