The Prodigal (1955), produced by Metro Goldwyn Mayer, is loosely based on the story of the Prodigal Son. It was one of the last films in the big-budget Hollywood Biblical epic tradition. Micah (Edmund Purdom), the prodigal in question, falls prey to the deadly charms of the pagan high priestess Samarra (Lana Turner).
