Rome burns. Nero fiddles. Christianity rises. And moviegoers turned out in throngs for this years-in-the-making film colossus boasting eight Oscar nominations (including Best Picture) and featuring 110 speaking parts, 30,000 participants and a filmed-on-location panoply of marching legions, magisterial pageantry and massive spectacle that includes the martyrdom of Christians thrown to the lions before cheering Coliseum throngs.

Robert Taylor plays the Legion commander whose love for a Christian slave girl crosses the divide between Empire and a sect with a higher loyalty. Presiding over all is Nero.

He is Caesar, madman, murderer - an imperial ruler of the spectacular, and spectacularly doomed, glory that was Rome.

Humphrey Bogart
R76 Discovery Miles 760 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Humphrey Bogart stars in one of his most memorable performances as Eddie Willis, a sportswriter who joins forces with a corrupt boxing promoter named Benko.

Together, they scheme to deceive Toro Moreno, a clumsy, seven-foot giant, and the public into believing Moreno has a shot at the heavyweight title. Through a carefully arranged series of fixed fights, Toro is duped into believing that he is a capable contender, only to have his dreams -and his huge body - shattered when he is brutally beaten in a genuine fight with the heavyweight champion.

Jersey Joe Walcott appears as Moreno's trainer, with former boxing great Max Baer as the heavyweight champ. The Harder They Fall is an intriguing film in the tradition of Bogart classics.

In black and white.

Box set containing five classic movies from popular filmmaker Billy Wilder. In 'Avanti!' (1972), Jack Lemmon stars as American executive Wendell Armbuster. On travelling to Italy to recover his father's body after a car accident, Wendell soon becomes tied up in endless red tape, and is shocked to discover that his father had a mistress, who also died in the car crash. The mistress' daughter, Pamela Piggott (Juliet Mills), arrives in Italy to collect her mother's body, and she and Wendell embark on a series of misadventures both comic and romantic. In 'Irma La Douce' (1963), Nestor (Lemmon) is a bumbling Parisian policeman who manages to get the sack after raiding a house of ill repute at which his boss is in attendance. Looking for work, he is taken on by streetwalker Irma La Douce (Shirley Maclaine) as her business manager, and soon finds himself falling in love with her. Determined to keep Irma faithful, Nestor disguises himself as an elderly English lord and becomes her sole client. All goes well, until Irma confesses her love to Nestor - not for him, but for his aged alter ego! In 'Kiss Me, Stupid' (1964), Dean Martin plays a sex-crazed singer who feigns a professional interest in an amateur songwriter, so that he can pursue a romantic interest in the latter's wife. However, the deceit does not all lay on Martin's side, and there follows a tangled web of bluff and double bluff, as the characters strive to work out who is fooling who. In 'One, Two, Three' (1961), C.R. MacNamara (James Cagney), an ambitious Berlin-based executive for an American cola company, sees his chances for advancement go up in smoke when his boss' daughter (Pamela Tiffin) comes on holiday to Berlin and ends up marrying a fierce young communist (Horst Buchholz). With the boss due to visit in a few days time, MacNamara sets to work, juggling angry Russians, officious Germans, and his own increasingly-exasperated wife, as he tries to put matters right. Finally, in 'Some Like it Hot' (1959), unemployed musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Lemmon) go on the run after witnessing the St Valentine's Day Massacre. Pursued by gangsters, the duo are forced to disguise themselves as women and join Sweet Sue's all-girl band on the next train for Florida. Joe is attracted to Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe), the band's singer, while Jerry finds himself pursued enthusiastically by millionaire Osgood E. Fielding III (Joe E. Brown). Comic complications ensue.
