Bloated, even by religious epic standards, Huston's drama covers the first 22 chapters of Genesis. So you get the Creation, Adam and Eve, Noah and the ark, the flood, the Tower of Babel, and Abraham, among other would-be spectacles.

As yet, I've seen the first 90 minutes of the 1966 motion picture "The Bible". I THOROUGHLY enjoyed what I've seen. The cinematography is breathtaking, and the acting, script and music are incredible! There is even a brief humorous scene during the Noah's Ark segment: when Noah calls to one of his sons "Shem more pitch!", we see Shem sound asleep and snoring. Unfortunately, Noah gets his foot caught in a bucket, and by accident, slides down the side of the Ark and the bucket smacks Shem on the side of his head. Through it all, Shem remained asleep and snoring. The Adam and Eve segment is enacted with respect. Do yourself a TREMENDOUS favor and view this excellent production.
