Steve Reeves, Gianna Maria Canale, Jacques Sernas and the cast of THE SON OF SPARTACUS (1962; aka The Slave). Click on image to see full size.

The German Blu-rays I ordered last week arrived late last Friday afternoon. It was too late for me to write about it then but I can say that I'm very pleased with the Blu-ray of THE SON OF SPARTACUS. It's so much better than the Warner DVD released a few years ago. The image is clear and dark scenes (and there are a lot of them in this movie) are just right, unlike the Warner DVD. I'll have more on this Blu-ray and also on THE GOLDEN FALCON (1955) and CONSTANTINE AND THE CROSS (1961) in upcoming posts. Note: I didn't retouch the screenshot above. It's as is.

I am anxious to hear what you have to say about Constantine and the Cross. The reviews of it are wildly divergent on Amazon Germany. One says it looks great and the other says it looks like a VHS tape.

I got the recent German Blu-rays of Hannibal and The Lion of St. Mark and both look marvelous. Son of Spartacus is on the way.
