THE PRODIGAL (1955)

Transient

Director: Richard Thorpe
Cast: Lana Turner, Edmund Purdom, Louis Calhern

The Bible goes Vegas! Lana Turner (in costumes that would bring Liberace back to life) plays a pagan priestess who seduces a nice Hebrew boy and does a spectacular swan dive into a flaming pit. Absolute twaddle but lots of fun with sets that look like they fell off a Mardi Gras float and orgies in which people eat roast chicken with their hands and pour wine all over their chins. Watch out for that terrifying stuffed vulture on a string attack.
