Documentary on the Making Of "The Fall of the Roman Empire"

DVD Savant has posted this link to a 10-min color featurette on the making of the 1964 super-epic film that "inspired" (*cough* was ripped off by) Gladiator, and which is not yet available on DVD and probably never will be at this rate. So this is a good chance to get a sneak peak. Enjoy!

Mel Martin, an author preparing a book on the legendary producer Samuel Bronston, sent me this link yesterday. It's a nicely encoded ten-minute color featurette promoting Bronston's epic The Fall of the Roman Empire, narrated by James Mason and filmed in widescreen 35mm. It looks great, although so far I've only been able to see about nine minutes of it before it locks up. Perhaps there's a secret. Thanks for reading -- Glenn Erickson
Please note: The sets and extras are real, not CGI.

Other scenes from the film, set to goofy music:
