Three hour long epic about Islam. Never shows the main character.
Pretty good. I read in Anthony Quinn's autobiography that he was late to the first day of shooting for this film. Because the character he played looked so much like the historical personage, the locals went into an uproar upon seeing him (Quinn) coming over the hills. The big-shots got wind of this, and said something to the effect of 'fuck Anthony Quinn, we'll get this guy to do the part instead!'
One of the best historical biography.
