When the fly is buzzing around in front of the Roman guard's face (just before he eats it), if you look carefully, as it flies in front of his face, you can barely see the string holding up the fake fly being dangled in front of the actor's face. See more »
first off-don't expect anything to do with the original caligula. this is an italian comedy version which uses left over sets from that production. messalina is the emperor of romes wife and spends much of the film in a variety of sex scenes. there is a lot of genuinely funny parts in this film-mainly due to the truly awful english dubbing. before seeing this film i was unaware that romans spoke with strong american accents and called each other babe! to top it all off the film ends with a long gore scene which was very surprising although this too is done in a humorous way. this is worth picking up if you see the dvd for sale cheap although beware-the picture quality of the dvd is pretty crummy.
