Probably better than the disappointing remake. Based on actual events in 480 B.C. Greece, this drama stars Richard Egan as Greek soldier Leonidas who led 300 Spartan Soldiers against a huge Persian army. Supported only by a smaller group of Thespian Soldiers, despite being promised armies and ships from all over Greece, Leonardis nonetheless prepares for battle at Thermopylae, which offers some tatical advantages.
This is a story of betayal, courage and self sacrifice. An above average epic of its time and quite enjoyable now.
