By the Gods!

King Leonidas (Richard Egan) tells Gorgo (Anna Synodinou) and Ellas (Diane Baker) that he's going to war in THE 300 SPARTANS

A well mounted Sword & Sandal made in Hollywood. it's pretty obvious this film was inspired by Italian PEPLUM films but it lacks the organic, lusty approach of the Italians. Not bad. It's just very academic. Diane Baker is pretty but her storyline drags the entire film. Richard Egan is the best thing in it. This is not his only S&S film. He should have made more of them.

As a side note, I'm taking some time off. Back soon.

I like this movie very much. 300 SPARTANS is a well mounted epic filmed on location in Greece. There some very good actors in this Historical Movie. I think that the love story with Diane Baker could of been eliminated. The battle scenes are very good,and Richard Egan did a fine job. I also wish he could made many more Peplums.
