The Fall of the Roman Empire

Magnificent sets are the trademark of Samuel Bronston's The Fall of the Roman Empire, a tale of events leading to the destruction of one of the most fascinating periods in civilization. A full-scale reproduction of the entire Second Century Roman Forum is the maor setting, built in seven months on a 250-acre site near Madrid, and said to be the largest of all motion picture sets. For talent, Hollywood U.S.A. called on Sophia Loren, Stephen Boyd, Alec Guiness, James Mason, and Christopher Plummer to recreate for modern audiences the era that knew the only absolute power in history.
