|Sequel to the robe. Demetrius is a devout christian entrusted to protect the robe that fell from the shoulders of jesus on the cross. Filled with vivid and brutal recreation of gladiators in combat. Features: theatrical trailers, widescreen format, english and spanish subtitles.|
Editor's NoteEmperor Caligula has two things on his mind: gladiatorial displays and gaining possession of the robe which fell from Jesus on the cross and is now in the hands of Demetrius (Victor Mature). Caligula and Messalina, young wife of the Emperor's uncle Claudius, work together to get the robe away from Demetrius, who ends up fighting as a gladiator. The epic sequel to the smash hit THE ROBE.
