Sorry we didn't get to see it...
I am a serious fan of Robert Graves' books, the BBC series, and pretty much anything else I can devour about the era of the great Roman Emperors. Every time I rewatch the series (about twice a year), I absolutely MUST watch the documentary about this movie also. I find it quite fascinating, and am left with an unfulfilled longing to watch the entire movie. This is a totally EMOTIONAL response to the documentary, and has absolutely nothing to do with any controversy over the production, which IMHO is exactly what filmmakers want - an EMOTIONAL RESPONSE. Of course the clips we get to see have flaws, have you ever seen unfinished parts of a movie that didn't? (Or even a FINISHED movie, for that matter) I personally believe it is a shame they had someone like von Sternberg involved instead of a director that really cared about the project and was willing to do it justice. Think about it... The director is pretty much the backbone of a movie. If he comes in with the attitude that he's not happy with anything, how can anyone else be happy about what they are doing? I think it had as much potential of becoming a phenomenon as the BBC series.
