A Story of David


Historical drama104 Mins1960

Renowned for his courageous deeds as a youth when he slew Goliath, David (Jeff Chandler) inadvertently incurs the wrath of King Saul (Basil Sydney), who is jealous of the hero's popularity. In order to provide peace of mind for the Israelite king, Saul's scheming counselor, Doeg (Peter Arne), encourages the ruler to have David killed. David, aided by his friend Jonathan (David Knight), who is Saul's own son, attempts to survive without overtly clashing with his own people.
