A series of films scripted by Dalton Trumbo continues with this noir double feature, including GUN CRAZY, arguably the most hyper-charged, adrenaline-fueled B-movie of all time, and John Garfield's final film role in HE RAN ALL THE WAY.
Director Stanley Kubrick’s awesome epic is one of the most visually stunning films ever produced. Kirk Douglas stars as the gladiator who leads his fellow slaves in a revolt against Rome, while co-stars Laurence Olivier, Tony Curtis, Jean Simmons, Peter Ustinov, John Gavin and Nina Foch get swept into the firestorm. Brilliantly scripted by writer Dalton Trumbo (whose hiring by producer Douglas helped shatter the blacklist), with Oscar-winning photography by Russell Metty.
