When a Roman general is betrayed and his family murdered by an emperor's corrupt son, he comes to Rome as a gladiator to seek revenge.
On visiting the real Colosseum, Ridley Scott remarked to production designer Arthur Max that it was "too small," so they designed an outsized "Rome of the imagination" which was inspired by English and French romantic painters, as well as Nazi architect Albert Speer.
Maximus's wife and son hold their hands up to their foreheads, as if to shield their eyes from the sun, to look into the distance. However, the hands aren't placed at an angle to actually provide shade to the eyes; there is no shadow below their hands.
Midway through the closing credits, the following text appears: "To our friend, Oliver Reed"
