Spartacus (1960) Film Review

DIRECTOR: Stanley Kubrick
BOTTOM LINE: The Kirk Douglas – Stanley Kubrick epic has not aged well but the supporting cast, particularly Laurence Olivier and Peter Ustinov, make it worth seeing. The scene between General Marcus Licinius Crassus (Laurence Olivier) and his slave Antoninus (Tony Curtis) was originally cut from the 1960 version but saved from the cutting from floor and when the slave revolt epic was restored in 1991.

And taste is not the same as appetite and, therefore, not a question of morals
