A demobilized centurion returns home to Pompeii to find his father murdered by a gang of black-hooded Christian robbers that terrorizes the city and he decides to investigate the matter while the nearby volcano threatens to erupt.
Christine Kaufmann was only 13 years old when the film was made in 1958. She played the love interest of Steve Reeves who was well over 30. No-one seemed to mind in those days.
The material spewed from Vesuvius plunged the city into darkness and many of the people of Pompeii died from the gases and especially from breathing in the volcanic ash. However, this would not have been visually dramatic.
