They may as well have just stolen the plot from a Russ Meyer movie than pay Vidal the big bucks.

Why didn't they have the internet around 20 years ago? Pictures of Teresa Ann Savoy in a couple of minutes search. Now The Hon. Teresa Ann. I wouldn't have got out of the house in those days. Relatively speaking.

Three scenes I remember from how ever long it was I saw it. Longer than I'd care to remember.

One of his lieutenants is getting married and he decides to torture him and the bloke's acting like a pussy, all "but I've been loyal what did I ever do to you why are you doing this?" Then Caligula gets the bloke's his soon-to-be-missus down on a table and he pulls her legs apart and he's examining her smoo trying to figure out what a "virgin" is.

Then he gives her a right royal rogering in front of her soon-to-be husband. Then he kills the bloke.

Crikey!

And the bit where he burries one of his top generals up to his neck in the Circus Maximus or wherever it was. And there's a giant beheading machine slowly creeping along while everyone chucks eggs at the general and laff and carry on. Then when it gets near him, the general starts acting like a pussy with a stupid "oh noes I'm about to be beheaded!" look on his face and then.. PHOONK!

Struth!

And that ugly fat facking Senator who said something rash to Caligula like "if I could only give my life to help you I would" so Caligula says to his guards "OK then, take this fat facker outside and kill him." And the ugly fat facker is all "b.. b.. but.." with a stupid pussy look on his face as he's getting dragged out.

Blimey!

Yeah. Pretty messed up movie. I was way too young to be watching that shit.


ps: Richie Beneaud = Tiberius

pppps: The bottom photo instantly reminded me of this:

this

That.

anything about the fall of Rome is certainly TIMELY right now.
