The Fall Of The Roman Empire (DVD)
One of the great screen epics, director Anthony Mann's Oscar-nominated film stars Alec Guinness and Sophia Loren with Christopher Plummer, Stephen Boyd, James Mason and Omar Sharif.
Drawn from the same events that later inspired Gladiator, the film charts the power-hungry greed and father-son betrayal that led to Rome s collapse at the bloody hands of the Barbarians. Featuring great sets, fine acting, and thundering battle scenes (Videohound s Movie Guide) plus a blistering chariot race rivalling that in Ben-Hur, this is a must-see epic full of the gore and glories of ancient Rome (Channel 4).
