By the Gods!

Barbara Carroll and Christine Kaufmann are about to be executed by hungry lions in THE LAST DAYS OF POMPEII

Carroll's character, Nydia, is blind. She's central to the story and she is basically its heart and soul. She's also one of the main characters of the novel by baron Edward Bulwer-Lytton. This adaptation, like so many others based on the novel, was more 'inspired' by the book than an actual accurate adaptation.

The novel is virtually unreadable - at least for most modern readers - due to its stilted language, length, and religiosity.
