YMMV / The Greatest Story Ever Told

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Charlton Heston as John the Baptist, Roddy McDowall as Matthew, Gary Raymond as Peter, Joseph Childkraut as Nicodemus, John Abbott as Aben, Philip Coolidge as Chuza, Marian Seldes as Herodias and Chet Stratton as Theophilus.
  • Narm:
    • John Wayne's rendition of "Truly this man was the Son of God." No one would blame you for adding "pilgrim", either out loud or subconsciously.
    • John the Baptist's arrest. He wrestles with Herod's soldiers in the river Jordan (one leaping from horseback to tackle him) where he forcibly baptizes them, shouting "Repent!!"
    • The use of "Hallelujah Chorus" when Lazarus rises from the dead. Even worse when you realize that this was not the original music for the sequence!
