The Plot of The Robe (1953)
The film follows the journey of Marcellus Gallio (Richard Burton), a Roman tribune who is ordered to crucify Jesus of Nazareth (Michael Ansara) but is tormented by his guilty conscience afterwards. Marcellus wins Jesus's robe from Paulus (Jeff Morrow) in a dice game on Calvary, but when he uses it to shield himself from rain, it causes him sudden, intense pain.
Marcellus returns to Palestine to try to learn more about the man he killed and his followers. He meets Peter (Michael Rennie), one of Jesus's disciples, who tells him about Jesus's teachings and miracles. Marcellus also encounters Demetrius (Victor Mature), a former slave who became a follower of Jesus after witnessing his crucifixion. Demetrius helps Marcellus escape from the Romans who are hunting him down for desertion.
Marcellus travels to Galilee, where he meets Miriam (Betta St. John), a young woman who sings songs inspired by Jesus. Marcellus falls in love with her and decides to become a Christian. He also reunites with Diana (Jean Simmons), his childhood love who is now a ward of Emperor Tiberius (Ernest Thesiger) and has been pledged in marriage to Caligula (Jay Robinson), the regent and future emperor.
Marcellus faces a dilemma: he can either renounce his faith and marry Diana, or he can remain loyal to Jesus and face death at the hands of Caligula. He chooses the latter option and is arrested by Caligula's men. He is sentenced to execution along with Demetrius and Miriam. Before he dies, he gives the robe to Peter and asks him to spread the message of Jesus throughout the world.
