|From the Old Testament, The First Book of Samuel; this beautifully filmed story of David's life with King Saul has all the power and sensitivity of the Biblical account. King Saul, requesting a conqueror to slay the Philistine giant Goliath, is amused when the child-servant of God, David of Bethlehem, answers his request. With the faith in God, David slays the giant and wins the love and admiration of Israel and the King. David becomes a great warrior for the King's army. Even though King Saul comes to admire David, the King starts to slowly lose faith in God. With the spirit of God departed from Saul, David is anointed King of Israel, thus begins a love-hate relationship between Saul and David. As the blessings of God fall upon David and he is exalted, Saul's fury rises against him in this epic tale|
Editor's NoteDavid's life with King Saul is portrayed in this Biblical story. It includes the battle with Goliath, wars, the family and the tragic end of Saul.

Customer Reviews of Saul and David
A Sunday Movie1/28/2013
Saul and David, though a modest production, succeeds in capturing the Biblical milieu where grander efforts fail. Two outstanding actors and a competent script raise this film above the common run of the epic genre. Norman Wooland as Saul journeys from arrogant confidence to piteous despair and failure. Handsome Gianni Garko as David evolves from reverent obedience to rebelliousness and doubt.
