Rodrigo Borgia, Pope Alexander VI, has three adult children: Juan, who is virtuous and has a sweetheart who is a woman of the people, Lucrezia, who is virtuous and wants to marry Alfonso, and Cesare, who is wicked and lusts after Lucrezia, Juan's girlfriend, and probably others. Cesare has vowed to kill any suitor for Lucrezia's love, and he has three thugs to carry out his wishes. Bodies fall into the Tiber, into the Colosseum (with lions prowling), and onto the Vatican floors. Written by Judy Shoaf

It's a film that you will likely need to watch more then once in order to keep track of all the characters, but is worth a second viewing as this seldom seen classic has an outstanding cast and a powerful story. The film may be ordered at
