The might of Rome and its empire appears tailor-made for epic movies and, therefore, it is not surprising that Rome has enticed Hollywood directors for decades. This well-illustrated and scholarly book, full of colour stills from over half a century of filmmaking, presents a comparative study of the different ways in which Hollywood has interpreted history over the years and the reasons why Rome is so photogenic. Following an overview of the genre of Roman epic, Junkelmann discusses the relevance, and indeed presence, of historical authenticity in such films as Spartacus and Ben Hur, amongst others, and the realism or otherwise behind the depiction of some of the horrors of the Roman age, notably slavery and the massacre of Christians for entertainment. In a case study Junkelmann compares and contrasts Hollywood's treatment of the same period in The Fall of the Roman Empire and Gladiator . Sections also examine the ways in which directors have recreated the battlefield, the gladiatorial arena and the city of Rome itself. German text.
