period: Demetrius and the Gladiators

Demetrius is back in this sequel to The Robe: an exceeding silly Biblical epic – even by the standards of Biblical epics! – and the less said about Messalina’s (Susan Hayward) reformation the better.

Susan Hayward’s makeup and hairstyle makes barely any concessions to a ‘period’ look. Ben Nye was the makeup artist.
