One of the most stylish and successful epics to emerge from the Hollywood-on-the-Tiber phase of film history. Quinn plays the legendary thief whose spiritual/physical journey begins at the Crucifixion and ends in the Roman arena, with a period in the sulphur mines in between. The unexpected quality owes everything to Christopher Fry's highly literate dialogue and Fleischer's very considerable abilities as a director of action.
