Anne Bancroft and Victor Mature in DEMETRIUS AND THE GLADIATORS (1954) 

For me, seeing Anne Bancroft in a story set in Antiquity always strikes me as odd. I've only seen her in stories set in contemporary times so when she appears with gladiators I always make a double take. It's a small role but a great one as she stood out from the male pack. Anne's early career, appearing in movies such as GORILLA AT LARGE (1954), wasn't the  one she would have in just a few years so this must have been fun for her.
