No other source makes up for more intense and interesting stories than that of the Holy Bible.
Numerous tales have been picked up by Hollywood to appear on the big screen and the film, Esther and the King, is the fourth version of this particular Bible tale. The movie premiered in 1960 and starred Joan
Collins, Richard Egan, and Denis O’Dea. Being a Hollywood movie, there are obviously some things that have been embellished for the sake of a box office draw.
The story tells the basic story of Esther (Collins) who is taken as the wife of the King of Persia, Ahasuerus (Egan). While sticking to the basic outline of the story, the movie does of course take liberties – instead of Esther being chosen by the King from a line of eligible girls, she is the fiancée of one of the King’s guards, Simon. She is however stolen away by the palace guards to be chosen. The movie does follow most of the bible story, though it has its moments of Hollywood style.
