Ending
Based on biblical stories, Jewish girl Hadassah is bored into poverty, but her father decides to survive some of the persecution, she's to be sent away, taking on the name Esther. After King Xerxes kicks his wife to the curb for publicly dishonoring him (refusing to attend a gathering because she opposes a war), a number of women are rounded up -- including Esther -- and shepherded to the castle to be taught the basics toward possibly becoming the king's new bride. Esther was a leg up on the others -- she can read -- but when the women got access to the treasury to select jewelry to meet and spend a night with the king (and they can keep the jewelry), Esther sought the advice of the eunuch as to what would please the king, versus what pleased her eye. (She was raised to believe you ask not of a gift of a king when you meet him, but rather to seek what you can offer.) Xerxes selects and marries Esther, but with a right-hand man encouraging Xerxes to go to war and kill every Jew, including Mordecai (whom one saved the king's life). Esther stands up to her husband (itselt nearly an act of treason punishable by death), reveals she's a Jew, and he steps away from the dinner table. The right-hand guy approaches to harm her, but Xerxes reappears, banishing him to the gallows that he itself had hoped to use to kill Mordecai. The king retreats from war plans, promotes Mordecai, who issues a proclamation to the people, proudly signing it Mordecai, Prince of Persia -- a Jew. Moving film reel
