Quo Vadis is a 1951 epic film made by MGM in Technicolor.
The movie takes place in ancient Rome from AD 64-68. After Emperor Claudius' powerful reign. The main subject is the conflict between Christianity and the corruption of the roman empire.
This movie is often shown during the Easter season. I've only seen it once but it was very memorable.
It was nominated for eight Oscars, but it didn't win any. Peter Ustinov won the Golden Globe for best Supporting Actor and he earned it.
