Roman Scandals

Time Out says

A pleasantly entertaining pot-pourri of humour, song, and dance, structured around the goggle-eyed gaucheries of Cantor as the small-town boy, run out by the authorities because of his troublesome social conscience, who dreams that he is a slave in Ancient Rome (graduating to the perilous post of food-taster for Arnold's Emperor). Though the wit has dated somewhat, it's still worth seeing for its typically lavish Goldwyn production values: Richard Day's impressive set designs, Gregg Toland's camerawork, and Busby Berkeley's usual excesses in a slave-market scene, populated by masses of all but naked Goldwyn girls.
