Gordon Scott stars as Marcus Lucilius, a man who vows to protect a young woman and winds up a Gladiator fighting in Rome. The young woman turns out to be a Princess who also happens to be a Christian.
She convinces Marcus of her religious beliefs and he helps fight for the Christians who are being killed and persecuted by the Romans.
There are some interesting scenes in this film and more than a few times one seems to see nothing but hopelessness in any situation. Scott plays the role well and so does his leading lady Wandisa Guida, who made quite a few of these kinds of films.
The print from Mill Creek isn't good as far as color goes, but it is very watchable. recommended for fans of Peplum films.
