Sins of Rome – Retelling the 1st-century B.C. slave revolt, which shook the Roman Empire to its core.  The hero behind the rebellion is a Thracian slave, Spartacus (Massimo Girotti), who handles the role quite impressively.  To enhance the story’s romantic appeal, the scriptwriters have bestowed on Spartacus two leading ladies:  Sabina (Gianna Marian Canale), the sensuous daughter of a Roman aristocrat, and Sabina’s personal slave, Amitys (played by ballerina Ludmilla Tcherina).  But beyond the romantic plot twists there is an abundance of gladiatorial combat and exciting battle scenes.
