The Book and the Idol (film #10 in the General section of the State of Israel section of Stephen Spielberg Jewish Film Archive). [Category: Hollywood]

In this 1960 film, archaeological artifacts from the Land of the Bible exhibition are shown. Unfortunately, the narration is in Spanish. It’s too bad I couldn’t understand the language on this one, because the visuals are quite interesting, the music is well done, and the narration gets quite dramatic in spots. Still, this has historical value for its visuals of artifacts of biblical history.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
