Spectacular scene from QUO VADIS (1951)

The movie QUO VADIS is replete with matte painting and special effects, too many to cover in one post. In this post I'll focus on the victory parade ceremony, which is one of the most spectacular scenes ever put on film. Just compare the scene as it looked like in the movie and how it was in real life. Stunning matte work with a stunning set. Peter Ellenshaw was the artist responsible for this seamless work of art.
