Deborah Kerr and Robert Taylor in QUO VADIS (1951) 

The odd thing about this spectacular epic is the two leads 'romantic' relationship. It doesn't work. Oddly enough, the actors' individual performances are good but the romantic aspects fall flat. It' not really believable. It's really the only big liability of this often maligned film. Maybe the actors didn't get along. I don't know but this problem is often seen in other PEPLUM movies with boring romantic plot lines of the lead characters.

The secondary love story of Marina Berti and Leo Genn is much more compelling.
