By the Gods!

Gordon Scott during the climax of GLADIATOR OF ROME (1962)

Another PEPLUM movie with a title that belies the movie: Scott never ends up as a gladiator in some  arena in Rome. It's a good title and there are gladiators in it but nothing really about Rome or fighting in the arena.

2020 marks the10th year of the blog's existence. It's been quite a decade. The screenshot above is the image I've used as an avatar, for the blog or Youtube channels. IMO, it's an iconic ending (even though it reduces Scott as a passive onlooker during the mayhem).

I'll be trying new, different things for 2020, including what I just announced in the post below. It's going to take some time and effort on my part to execute these new projects, which means I have to cut back a little here at the blog. I'm taking next week off from posting at the blog (Christmas was really hectic here so I need a break). I usually post a screenshot from THE 300 SPARTANS whenever I take a break but this one is not the usual break I schedule every 2 months. Everything is on-going, which means I'll announce things as they happen.

I thank everyone for the support during these 10 years. It's been incredible.

(Don't worry. The blog is still on-going. More about this next week...)
