  1. Sorry you didn’t like it. Sure it had some faults, but try watching it with a bit of a sense of humor…the dialogue was so obviously campy in so many spots…c’mon! “What happens in the morning?…I thought you knew, the sun comes up!” or “Octavian, when you die, I fear you will die without ever having lived!” And the grand entrance into Rome will not be seen on that scale again. I recall a British friend of mine laughing and saying that only American filmmakers would come up with something like that. He’s absolutely right and vive la difference and hooray for Hollywood! Sorry, but I disagree with you totally…this was a technical masterpiece (the music, too) and the dialogue was hysterical. It’s probably good that you weren’t around for all the long epics in the 50s and 60s. But just Relax and enjoy!
