Filmed in Israel and Spain, the four-hour made-for-TV movie "The Story of David" stars Timothy Bottoms as the Biblical king. The "David and Goliath" legend is presented as credibly as possible, while David's later disastrous romance with Bathsheba (Jane Seymour) is handled with taste and decorum. Also in the cast are Anthony Quayle as King Saul, and Terence Hardiman as Bathsheba's unfortunate warrior husband Uriah.
Timothy Bottoms and Jane Seymour lead a talented cast in this two-part story of the life of King David. It begins with his legendary battle with the giant Goliath, and ends with his romance with Bathsheba and struggle to preserve Israel. The story of David is a legendary saga of a man after God's own heart.
History making period in David's life when his popularity with the people incurred the wrath and jealousy of King Saul who then sent him into exile.
