Henri Vidal and Michèle Morgan in FABIOLA (1949) 

This image sorta sums up the entire epic movie. It's quite big and long. For its theatrical release in the USA, the 164 minutes epic was whittled down to 97 minutes. Quite a feet. Presumably, the original cut doesn't have an English dub unless there's an International English Dub version that was never used. The movie was one that re-ignited the PEPLUM genre, along with SAMSON AND DELILAH (1949). The movie itself and the influence it had of the genre are often overlooked. It's not a 'fun' movie even though there are several spectacular scenes in it. The movie is in the public domain in North America but I can't upload it to Youtube.
