Storyline

A satirical film on fads in the US. A TV host on a late night show tries to convince his televiewers that they should return to Rome and Roman ways. Depicts in a semi-realistic manner what could happen if the latest America fad became Reditus Ad Roma, a Return to Rome. Launched as a gimmick by a late night TV show, the International Culture Hour, the fad catches on fast and soon everybody from the long-haired pop singers to senators, from motor cycle outlaws to the military chiefs of the Pentagon, are dressing up in togas and taking part in orgies organized at the fashionable discos and in private houses. A mysterious figure from the Other World, a Roman general who survived the fall of Rome, who has been sent to Earth to convince our sin soaked masses not to let it happen again, provides the moral.

I Was An Extra in This Movie
8 February 2020 | by barnaclebevSee all my reviews

I was an extra in this movie when I was 18. I had to hitchhike to get there. I was running around in a toga with a zipper and got hit with a giant boulder, so they had to retake the scene. In another scene I was at an orgy making out with a guy and they kept reshooting the scene so I got the worst beard burn ever. I never got to see it, so I'd love to laugh at it if anyone can help me find a way to do so 😆 Thanks Beverly Carver
