Titanus Studios was in the day one of the biggest film studios in Italy. It produced a boatload of PEPLUM films, including SON OF SPARTACUS and NERO'S BIG WEEKEND. But when the expensive SODOM & GOMORRAH bombed at the box office and Visconti's THE LEOPARD also failed to generate revenue, the studio ceased film production in 1964. It only came back a decade later and now maily produces TV production.

Robert Aldrich directing a scene from SODOM & GOMORRAH. A costly project which was a box office failure and subsequently forcing Titanus Studios from making films for many years. Damn that film!!! Arf.
