On Saturday night after we got back from Lake Tulloch, Sharon wanted to watch a movie. We sent Jack upstairs with instructions to find something on the AppleTV that we could all watch. Jack came back saying that he had chosen Spartacus!
This 1960 film stars Kirk Douglas as rebellious slave Spartacus and Laurence Olivier as his foe, the Roman general and politician Marcus Licinius Crassus. The film also stars Peter Ustinov (who won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as slave trader Lentulus Batiatus), John Gavin (as Julius Caesar), Jean Simmons, Charles Laughton, and Tony Curtis.
It is runs 3 hours and 16 minutes. In a testament to the fact that the film is very watchable, we actually managed to make it all the way through in one sitting without falling asleep!
