Storyline

Rome chafes under the rule of the Emperor Domitian and his Egyptian mistress, Artamne. A mysterious champion arises to fight against the Emperor -- a masked man known as the Red Wolf. In fact, the Red Wolf is Valerius Rufus, one of the Emperor's trusted centurions who's aided by none other than the Emperor's court jester, the diminutive Elpidion. Rebels in league with Valerius kidnap Artamne, planning to exchange her for two of their imprisoned colleagues, but Artamne escapes and soon both Valerius, (now exposed as the Red Wolf), and his fiancee, Lucilla, are sentenced to be immersed in a cauldron of molten lead. Valerius's friends, however, rise up to rescue him and to liberate Rome. Written by dinky-4 of Minneapolis

Orfei and Lulli
6 July 2015 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Like in many sword and sandals films ,it's the villains who walk away with the honors;Moira Orfei is a sadistic vicious concubine,fond of jewels with a wide selection of wigs.Piero Lulli is a paranoiac Domitian ,who trusts nobody and who "would kill all the Romans if he had to".A tyrant who wants to be considered a living god (check the first sequence),and ,except for a few sycophants ,is hated by the patricians AND the plebeians.

One of his courtiers -or two if we include the dwarf ,the court jester- is none other than the red wolf ,some kind of Zorro in Roman times ,adored by the nobles and the people ,just like Don Diego De la Vega.His faithful pal is played by Giuliano Gemma ,future spaghetti cowboy and earnest actor ("Delitto D'Amore" "Il Deserto Dei Tartari")

Forget history and you have an entertaining comic book;Amnesty International should condemn such sentences as the immersion in a cauldron of molten lead.
