I regard this to be a very good movie, focusing both on Rome, the evil emperor Nero, and the actions of a moral man "even though" he is a Roman soldier. It is to a large extent a movie about moral choices (Quo Vadis – where do you walk). Famous directors Mervin LeRoy and Anthony Mann (uncredited) is behind this large and very good executed production, staring Robert Taylor, Deborah Kerr and Peter Ustinov. The latter gives a very good performance of Nero and his narcissistic madness.

The only drawback is the movies format - 1,37 to 1, but in 1951 that was standard. The movie was nominated 8 Oscars: best picture, best actor in a supporting role (Ustinov) best cinematography and best editing, to mention a few. 167 minutes, mono audio. Subtitles: English, Bulgarian, Castilian, Danish, Finnish, German, Greek, Hungarian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish and Swedish.

Quo Vadis [Blu-ray] [1951]

Unfortunately Quo Vadis was made before the introduction of Cinemascope as it is a film crying out for widescreen.

The Technicolor spectacle is superb but I find the romance between Marcus Vinivius (Robert Taylor) and Lygia (Deborah Kerr)very much of the late Victorian era when the novel was written, although Deborah Kerr handles very well a difficult role portraying a woman balancing love for Marcus against her religious convictions.

The real star turns are Peter Ustinov as Nero, you can really believe he is mad, and Leo Genn as Petronius a sardonic sycophant playing to Nero's lunacy, it is these two actors that make the film worth watching.

Plenty of lions and Christians in the arena but no gore.

Apart from Ustinov and Leo Genn and the superb production values Quo Vadis is beginning to look a bit dated for this viewer.

Enjoyed it the first time in the cinema and glad they have issued it in DVD blu-ray. The quality is great and it has not dated one iota. The film was made in typical epic fashion of the era and holds it's own.
