Early Roger Moore effort.

Moore is Romulus the founder of Rome. This is in the early days of the empire and there are no women, so Romulus gets the idea to obtain women from Sabina where there appears to be a lot of women.

This leads to trouble because, of course, the Sabina men fight to get their wives and daughters back. This is a bizarre and somewhat forgotten film in the history of sword and sandal movies.

Moore does ok in his role as Romulus and it was good that he apparently dubbed his own voice, at least in the print I saw from Mill Creek anyway.

Rosanna Schiaffino appears in several scenes as Venus, the Goddess of Love who give a sleeping Romulus some advice. All in all not too bad of a film, and very different from most I have seen.
