Fairly Bland Orgy By My Standards
19 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The dissolute Emperor Heliogabalus (Jean Aymé) dresses as a woman, and looses lions among his guests.

The only thing that really stands out about this film is the use of lions. Of course, these lions are tame, but it is the first use of lions on film to my knowledge, and in a scenario where they are interacting with human beings. Anyone who had not been to a circus might have seen this and been amazed.

Beyond that, there is not much to report. Today's audiences might expect something a bit juicier based on the word "orgy" in the title, but do not get your hopes up. Regardless of the title, this is still a film from an earlier time when such images were not for public consumption.
