The Robe with Victor Mature

Victor Mature gives a wonderful performance in this film – one that in my opinion deserved an Oscar – and that would have probably been backed up by his Co-star Richard Burton who was very impressed by Victor Mature describing him as a ‘wonderful man’

After this he played the same role of Demetrius in the follow-up ‘Demetrius and the Gladiators’ – both films doing extremely well at the Box Office.

Someone once commented that Producers liked Victor Mature because most films that he was in made money – you can’t say that of many actors.

My Dad loved Victor Mature in The Robe so much so that after this film, he went to see nearly every film that he was in. He was my Dad’s favourite actor. I do remember him going to see ‘Zarak’ – a film that was made in England and again one that did very well financially.
