Film: The Prodigal
The Prodigal (1955), produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, is loosely based on the story of the Prodigal Son. It was one of the last films in the big-budget Hollywood Biblical epic tradition. Micah (Edmund Purdom), the prodigal in question, falls prey to the deadly charms of the pagan high priestess Samarra (Lana Turner). However, after much debauchery, Micah is betrayed, tossed into jail and almost killed. Needless to say, however, he escapes from prison, leads a revolt against the evil pagans and returns home.

This film contains examples of the following tropes:
