Samson and Delilah (1949)

Recommended Posts

Now that we are in the heart of the Christmas season, why can't TCM feature "Samson and Delilah", the 1949 version with Victor Mature, Hedy Lamarr, George Sanders and Angela Lansbury. I don't recall ever seeing that movie on TCM, am I wrong? I remember that scene, at the end of the movie, when Samson is blind, inside the arena, degraded, helpless and powerless and Delilah grabs the whip from that fat guard and says "He's mine to punish"

According to my memory, and MovieCollector's invaluable list, Samson and Delilah (1949) has been shown quite a number of times, though not recently.  This is probably because it's a Paramount production, and I learn these are difficult movies for TCM to get.  You might have to wait for one of its stars, or Cecil B. DeMille to be featured in something for it to be shown again.  Or you can watch it in segments here:


Or you can pay to watch it on YouTube or elsewhere.
