Omar Khayyam dramatizes the remowned Persian's heroic life and times. William Dieterle, whose credits include The Story of Louis Pasteur, Juarez and other films about great lives, directs this epic story highlighted by Khayyam's ingenious defense of the Empire when it's threatened by deadly conspirators. Cornel Wilde plays the title role. And Debra Paget is the beauty who inspires Khayyam's much-loved line: "a jug of wine, a loaf of bread and thou beside me, singing in the wilderness."
