By the Gods!

Jack Palance (Torvald) checks out his lead gladiator, played by Joe Robinson, in BARABBAS

This brief scene is filled with subtext. Very little is known of Torvald who's basically portrayed as a total psycho. But keeping with the time period the film was made, we sorta figure out what the director intended his character to be with this scene. He IS one of the more energetic characters in this film.
