Fall Of The Roman Empire, The: 2 Disc Deluxe Edition
One of the great screen epics, director Anthony Mann's Oscar-nominated The Fall of the Roman Empire comes to DVD for the first time in this digitally remastered deluxe edition. The all-star case includes Academy Award winners 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 rivaling that in Ben-Hur, this is a must-see "epic full of the gore and glories of ancient Rome" (Channel 4).
