QUO VADIS 60th anniversary: Nero sings


Nero (Peter Ustinov) sings while Rome burns; Petronius (Leo Genn) looks on at what monster he, indirectly, created. When Petronius kills himself, in his last note, he pleads to Nero to stop butchering the arts. Someone should remix Nero's singing with a beat.

When they did this scene with Ustinov singing those on the set must of been cracking up, and I wonder how many retakes there were. I wish there was outtakes done on all his scenes. He was great as Nero and I think that he fit the part perfectly. Do you know if there are any archives out there to check on this?

The image at the top is reversed. But the quality is fine.
