has brought out all the old sets of "The Robe" and used them with Caligula, St. Peter and Victor Mature.
Long sessions conducted in the Colosseum have only brief intervals in scenes in and around Rome.
Demetrius, you will remember, was the Greek slave of "The Robe." Victor Mature still wears that worried expression, but this time he has a good reason, seeing that he has to fight about a dozen gladiators—on one occasion four at a time—and then engage in a wrestling match with three fierce tigers.
He slays all men and animals in sight, loses his Faith and finds it again after a luxurious interlude with Messalina (Susan Hayward).
The real star of the production is Caligula, and once again Ray Robinson gives us an alluring picture of prancing and posturing madness.
