By the Gods!

Jean Simmons and Richard Burton amidst the splendour of THE ROBE

Great photo. First film released in CinemaScope. It's always a cool fact that the first widescreen film was a PEPLUM.

Jean Simmons was also great in the Kirk Douglas/Kubrick "Spartacus."

In my view "Spartacus" was the best of all Peplums. It hit tough social issues lacking in "Ben Hur."

Love this film! So many great actors and it cracks along at a nice pace.
