Movies About Noah

posted by Nell Minow

This week’s release of the serious, thoughtful, provocative “Noah” is a good reminder to re-visit some earlier versions of the Bible story about the man chosen by God to lead the humans and animals to survive the flood.

Noah’s Ark Oscar-winners Jon Voight, F. Murray Abraham, and Mary Steenburgen head the cast in this sometimes campy television movie.

Noah’s Ark Michael Curtiz, the director of “The Adventures of Robin Hood” and “Casablanca,” pairs the Biblical epic with a WWI story. Star Dolores Costello is the grandmother of Drew Barrymore.
