Androcles and the Lion

Androcles and the Lion

1952, Comedy
Based on George Bernard Shaw's play, an adaptation of the classic folktale, this film follows Androcles (Alan Young), a slave in Ancient Rome who has escaped his bonds and fled into the wilderness. A devoted Christian with an unparalleled level of compassion, he seeks to aid any who need assistance -- even a wild lion with a thorn in its paw. While the move to remove the thorn may seem foolhardy, Androcles' kindness is later repaid in the blood-stained ring of the Colosseum.
