 THE CINEMA LASER DVD REVIEW-- THE ROBE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-06)

THE ROBE is in need of an expensive film restoration, which would bring back the movie’s original luster and minimize all the signs of age, from the excessive grain to image softness to numerous blemishes at reel changes.
For this release THE ROBE is presented with a Dolby Digital 4.0 channel soundtrack that encompasses the original 4 channel stereo mix.

 Vol 3-8: The Robe River Affair - Charles Copeman
Furthermore, Robe River had in late 1985 acquired the additional ore reserves urgently needed for the early 1990s and beyond, for which the forward planning of extraction would be greatly dependent on the freedom of management to introduce new and more competitive working methods.
Both the unions and the Robe management had been extremely hostile to this attendance, and at about that time Peko became aware that the phrase `Peko paranoia', reportedly coined by a Commissioner of the Western Australian Industrial Relations Commission, was in common use.
This time the Robe management was not effective in keeping information from the members of the mission, and the subsequent report disclosed an appalling state of affairs, including the list of 284 restrictive work practices already compiled by the Robe River staff, and the outrageous food concessions which later attracted such public attention.

He wins Jesus' robe in a dice game, but thinks it bewitched when he's stricken with anxiety attacks after cloaking himself in it for just a moment.
The Robe is fascinating as the first CinemaScope film but not all that great from most other standpoints; as a drama it's almost as stiff as Quo Vadis from a few years before, and as a biblical epic it's neither very compelling nor accomplished.
