PEPLUM Movie Poster

Italian poster of SPARTACUS (1960)

On the right, the woman doesn't look much like Jean Simmons and Kirk looks more like Alan Ladd (the main figure does look like Kirk) but overall the artwork is great.

SPARTACUS is not perfect, but it is the best Peplum movie of all in my view.

the 2015 movie "Trumbo" presents an entertaining, but I'm also sure romanticized, account of the behind-the-scenes struggle for Kirk Douglas trying to get "Spartacus" made the way he felt it should be made. Kubrik's role in the production is very much downplayed. Dean O'Gorman is a surprisingly effective Kirk Douglas.
