Set against the backdrop of Republican Rome at the height of its power, Stanley Kubrick's SPARTACUS tells the powerful story of the gladiator slave who held Rome's legions at bay for four years with only an army of battle-trained slaves.
What Kubrick was to do10 years later for science-fiction as a genre with the revolutionary 2001- A Space Odyessy, he does here for the epic with this intelligent, politically sophisticated, and action packed film.
Kirk Douglas heads an all-star cast including Laurence Olivier, Peter Ustinov (Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor), Jean Simmons and Tony Curtis.
