The Big Fisherman

1959, Movie, NR, 180 mins

Long, often-enraging and totally miscast, THE BIG FISHERMAN features a nonsinging Keel as Saint Peter. It's just so much nonsense because such liberties are taken with the biblical texts. Douglas wrote the novel but made the mistake of entrusting it to the wrong people. The movie is distinguished chiefly by the fact that it was made entirely in the San Fernando Valley (this was before the realtors took over and made it a million-plus population suburb of Los Angeles) and has numerous technical mistakes: microphone boom shadows, kleig lights, Martha Hyer's vaccination mark. This is one of the rare bummers by Disney in those years. Nominated for three Academy Awards:...
