The Shepherd King is a 1923 American silent religious film produced and distributed by the Fox Film Corporation. It is based on the 1904 Broadway play The Shepherd King by Wright Lorimer (1874-1911) and Arnold Reeves (1870-1935). Top Fox director J. Gordon Edwards shot the movie, a sumptuous production for sure, with a primarily Italian cast and he filmed in Middle Eastern countries such as Palestine, Jerusalem and Egypt.

The resulting movie was festooned with too many intertitles, had a nearly all foreign cast who most Americans didn't know and also came up against direct competition from Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments (1923) which told much the same story.
