By the Gods!

Gordon Scott and Pietro de Vico in GLADIATOR OF ROME (1962)

Gordon Scott was probably thinking: how can I kill this annoying fellow? This film was one of the first to have a bunch of disparate and disgruntled gladiators join forces to form a small army with the hero to overthrow the villain. It quickly became one of the most popular clichés of the genre. It was released the same day as COLOSSUS OF ROME, which also had this identical plot line.
