Based on actual events occurring in 480 B.C. Greece. This scintillating drama stars Richard Eganias the Greek soldier Leonidas, who led 300 Spartan soldiers against an overwhelming Persian army in the Battle of Thermopylae.

Unable to recruit the soldiers he needs to defend a critical Greek mountain pass against Persia's King Xerxes, Leonidas nonetheless prepares for battle. When warned that the number of arrows his tiny army will face "will blot out the sun", Leonidas replies that his army will "fight in the shade." With it's superb cinematography, realism and musical score, this story of courage and self-sacrifice is inspired filmmaking at it's best.

Editor's Note
Released just a few years before a similar British film, ZULU, this 1962 English gladiator film depicts the tiny army of Sparta and their efforts to stave off an attack by Persian forces which greatly outnumbered the Spartans. Led by King Leonidis (Richard Egan), the Spartans army consisted primarily of a security force who guarded the palace. This rousing gladiator epic boasts an incredible cast including Diane Baker, Ralph Richardson, and Kieron Moore.
