Remembrance of Things Past
8 May 2000 | by johnk05See all my reviews

After seeing "Gladiator", I was thinking about all the other gladiator movies I've seen over the years and I remembered "Fabiola." I must have seen the movie in 1952 or thereabouts and its stuck with me ever since. It must have done something right - I remember being in love with Michelle Morgan and Henri Vidal. The fight scenes are o.k. See it if you get a chance.
