| The Huns Are Coming
According to Marilyn Kirk's biography of Jeff Chandler, Chandler was originally offered the role of Attila in Sign Of The Pagan. I think he was wise to decline as he would have been ill suited for the part. But I think Jeff would have been smart to skip this one altogether. He's rather colorless as the centurion who becomes Captain-General of the Roman forces.

When Jack Palance is on screen as Attila the Hun there ain't a stick of furniture safe in his view. It's that kind of part so sit back and enjoy. In fact Anthony Quinn took the same approach when he did Attila in a film that came out around the same time.

Nothing remotely historically accurate about Sign Of The Pagan other than Attila's meeting with Pope Leo I and his turning back from his conquest of Rome. Moroni Olsen in his farewell big screen performance is is the Pope. No one knows what was actually said so its is all open to speculation.

If you love scenery chewing acting when it's called for than Sign Of The Pagan is your kind of film.
