SIGN OF THE CROSS is one of DeMille's masterpieces. Claudette Colbert's milk bath scene (complete with slave girls wearing chains!) is one of the most erotic scenes in any Peplum.This film's over the top sexuality and violence (arena scenes) led to much stricter enforcement of the Code. It is interesting to compare SIGN OF THE CROSS with QUO VADIS, which has a very similar plot.
