An old childhood favorite!!

Slave of Rome has remained an elusive Video to locate, so far , even eluding the various merchants of vintage video, including Sinister Cinema. This was an exciting and fun "sword and sandal" movie that used to get played to death on Network TV back in the '60s. Besides Guy Madison, who was familiar at that time from the Western series, Wild Bill Hickock, it featured the stunning Rosanna Podesta, who at that time was probably in her absolute prime. For fans of this genre of movie, it was a refreshing break from the "sons of Hercules" style, in that the main character, although very swashbuckling, was very human and not a demi-god of any sort, and as such, his vulnerability made for more plot tension.
