    The film The Robe (1953) is based on the book of the same title by Lloyd Douglas. The movie portrays how Roman tribune Marcellus becomes a Christian after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The movie also emphasizes the mysticism of the robe worn by Christ at the time of his trial and death. Despite the fact that the book and movie are slightly different the movie does a good job of capturing the essence, message, and themes of the book. Also, though the movie may lack the grim realism of The Passion of the Christ (2004) and the dramatic action of Ben-Hur (1959), this is a great film depicting the birth of Christianity.
