Isaac: [as Abraham is preparing to kill him as a sacrifice] There is nothing that He may not ask of thee?
Abraham: Nothing.


Abraham: The ways of the Lord are not our ways. And what He hath intended or how it shall be perfected is not in our power to know. Only in the trust of what is to come can we prosper. And in that trust shall we pitch our tents.

Facts about

Franco Nero was dubbed by an uncredited actor in this film. It is possible, though, not confirmed, that several of the other Italian actors were dubbed as well, although the actors themselves can be seen mouthing the words.
French director Robert Bresson was hired in 1964 by producer Dino De Laurentiis as director. When he shot his first scene - the deluge - he requested the use of all the animals in Rome city zoo. The producers complied, but upon checking the daily rushes saw that the only thing Bresson filmed was the tracks of the animals upon a sandy beach. They were furious and Bresson was fired, John Huston took over the project, delaying production a further six months.
Alec Guinness was also offered the role of Noah.
