Hulu - The Message - Watch the full movie now.
Title    The Message (1977)
Runtime    2 hr. 58 min.
Studio    Trancas Internati...
Genres    Drama
Description    Handsomely-mounted historical epic concerns the birth of the Islamic faith and the story of the prophet Mohammed -- who, in accordance with the tenants of Islam, is never seen or heard (as this is offensive to certain islamic schools of thought). In Mecca in the 7th century, Mohammed is visited by a vision of the Angel Gabriel, who urges him to lead the people of Mecca to cast aside the 300 idols of Kaaba and instead worship the one true God. Speaking out against the corrupt political and military leaders who rule Mecca. With the help of his uncle, a brave warrior named Hamza (Anthony Quinn), Mohammed and his followers return to Mecca to liberate the city in the name of God. The Message (originally screened in the U.S. as Mohammed, Messenger of God) proved to be highly controversial during its production and initial release. Unfounded rumors had it that Mohammed would not only be depicted in the film, but that he was to be played by Charlton Heston or Peter O'Toole. This resulted in angry protests by Muslim extremists, until director Moustapha Akkad hired a staff of respected Islamic clerics as technical advisors. The Message was shot in two versions, one in English and one in Arabic (entitled Al-Ris-Alah), with different actors taking over some of the roles due to language requirements.

With the persistence of Mukhtar, the Libyans, battling the tanks and guns of the Italian army with their Bedouin troops on horseback, managed to hold off y the Italians for twenty years, until Mukhtar was finally captured and executed.

Very cool find Sis J, as I was saying in chat earlier today with ya.

Yes, so sad that M. Akkad died in such a way (his 33- year old daughter was also killed in that attack by the way) that is anti-thetical to the film and message of Islam he was trying to share.

You know, there was supposed to be a movie called Messenger of Peace - that was billed as a modern version of The Message, and that they were supposed to shoot scenes in Makkah itself, but I am guessing they weren't aloud and the project fell apart maybe....it even add it's own entry on IMDb.com, but haven't checked recently.

It would be great if the present society could see a film based on the Prophet given the climate.....I guess we can still hope......
