George Bernard Shaw’s breezy, delightful dramatization of this classic fable—about a Christian slave who pulls a thorn from a lion’s paw and is spared from death in the Colosseum as a result of his kind act—was written as a meditation on modern Christian values. Pascal’s final Shaw production is played broadly, with comic character actor Alan Young as the titular naïf. He’s ably supported by Jean Simmons, Victor Mature, Robert Newton, and Elsa Lanchester.Androcles and the Lion featuring Victor Mature and Jean Simmons is streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel. It's an action & adventure and comedy movie with a low Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 33% and an average IMDb audience rating of 6.2 (748 votes).
