The Robe

The Robe

Sent away from Rome for mocking the repulsive heir apparent Gaius, high-born Marcellus Gallio resigns himself to several dreary years in Palestine. But within a few months he is ordered to assist at the crucifixion of Jesus. Drunk and depressed he wins Christ’s robe at a dice game. It is only afterwards that he discovers the robe has miracle qualities.
