In today’s episode we begin our exploration of other adaptations of the Spartacus’ legend, starting with Stanley Kubrick’s 1960 film. Probably the best known adaptation of our favorite hero’s tale, it is jam packed with stars from yesteryear such as Peter Ustinov, Lawrence Olivier, Tony Curtis, Jean Simmons, and Kirk Douglas in the leading role. John and Roberto discuss differences and similarities between this version and our favorite TV series in part 1 of our review.
