Film information

Story: Tinto Brass's infamous soft-porn Roman epic stars Malcolm McDowell as the deranged titular Emperor, and provides an unexpected entry on the CVs of a number of well-respected actors. Author Gore Vidal provides the (uncredited) screenplay, which envisages first century Rome, under the rule of Tiberius (Peter O'Toole) and Caligula (McDowell), as a hotbed of sin and depravity. The film remained in limbo for two years as Brass wrangled over the right to a final cut. Three separate versions of the film are featured here: the UK theatrical release, the full uncut version (available for the first time), and the alternative cut, which substitutes the more graphically explicit scenes with alternative takes.

Starring: Malcolm McDowell, Teresa Ann Savoy, Helen Mirren, John Gielgud, Peter O'Toole, Guido Mannari, John Steiner, Paolo Bonacelli, Leopoldo Trieste, Giancarlo Badessi, Mirella Dangelo, Adriana Asti
