“Rome in Madrid”: 1964 Promotional Film for The Fall of The Roman Empire

Here are some great still-shots from the promotional mini-movie Rome In Madrid. This is a superb short narrated by James Mason about the making of the film The Fall of The Roman Empire. It is available on the Miriam Collection DVD release of the movie. Along with seeing how they made the stunning Roman Forum and filmed the amazing battle scenes, there are some great behind the scenes snips including Christopher Plummer and Alec Guinness playing chess, costume try-outs, Stephen Boyd leaving his trailer and riding off on a chariot down a snowy road like a pro, and Sophia Loren looking even more stunning as just herself.
