Barabba / Barabbas (1961) DVD9
The story of the thief Barabbas, who is spared instead of Jesus Christ, and that pivotal moment in human history plagues him the rest of his days.

As part of the traditions of Passover in early first century Jerusalem, a prisoner is to be released by the demands of the crowd. Pontius Pilate (Arthur Kennedy) offers the crowd Jesus, but they instead demand the release of Barabbas (Anthony Quinn), a thief and assassin. His initial plan is to return to his life of crime, but his girlfriend, Rachel (Silvana Mangano) becomes a Christian and suffers stoning for her beliefs, triggering a spiritual search by Barabbas. Brought again before Pilate, he is sentenced to the sulfur mines, where he meets a Christian, Sahak (Vittorio Gassman). Barabbas later ends up in a gladiatorial school run by the sadistic Torvald (Jack Palance), where he meets his final destiny.
