Pseudolus is the laziest slave in Rome and has but one wish, to purchase his freedom. When his master and mistress leave for the day he finds out that the young master has fallen in love with a virgin in the house of Lycus, a slave dealer specializing in beautiful women. Pseudolus concocts a deal in which he will be freed if he can procure the girl for young Hero. Of course, it can't be that simple as everything begins to go wrong. Written by

The line "Was 1 a good year?" was originally intended for the stage play, but was omitted because it was thought too leading. Somehow, though, it found its way into the film. See more »
In Lycus' house after Captain Miles Gloriosus and his soldiers arrive, one of the soldiers gets up and chases a girl. On the way he passes a juggler who use apples for balls and the soldier tries to catch one of the apples in mid-air. He fails to catch it but acts as if he did until he exits the shot. In the following shot he holds the "uncaught" apple in his mouth. See more »
I never saw this in the 60's though I was of an age to...just saw it the other night on television and only watched it for Buster Keaton, whom I have recently developed a great joy in seeing. I enjoyed the whole thing...silly, (sexest,yes, a movie of the 60's), funny stuff. My kids aged 10 and 12 really enjoyed it, too.
