Samson and Delilah (Samson Et Dalila)
In the well-known tale taken from the Old Testament's Book of Judges, Samson, one of the oppressed Jews, displays a unique strength when he kills Abimelech, one of the ruling Philistines. With Samson already under the spell of the beautiful Dalila, the High Priest of Dagon has her use her allure to discover the secret of Samson's power. Betrayed by Dalila and overpowered by the Philistines, Samson is paraded in his weakness into the temple. With a final prayer to God, enough strength returns for him to bring the temple crashing down on the heads of his enemies.
