Movie Info

In this sequel to "The Robe," the corrupt emperor Caligula (Jay Robinson) believes that the sacred robe of Christ has magical powers, and will stop at nothing to obtain it. When Demetrius (Victor Mature) refuses to help Caligula find the holy object, Caligula has him arrested and forces him to fight in the arena in battles to the death. As Demetrius faces trial after trial, his faith in Christ is pushed to its limits, as he sees no point in the endless suffering he is forced to endure.

Audience Reviews for Demetrius and the Gladiators

  • Apr 27, 2019
    This sequel to "The Robe" follows a slave (Victor Mature) who happens to attend the crucifixion of Christ and is converted, but then must navigate the shiny but filthy corruption that is Rome under Caligula. A big production with lots of celebrity face power, this is actually better than "The Robe", without its air of serious pontification. And the gladiatorial combat completely satisfies. Susan Hayward exemplifies corruption quite well, seductively, and Jay Robinson was born to play Caligula.

    I'm more or less sure that I saw this, and I'm more or less sure that I wouldn't again.

    (1954 Director: Delmer Daves) One of the very deeply moving epics from a bygone ear... Worth see! Take a glimpse at the talents and beauty of young Anne Bancroft & Susan Hayward as seductive Roman temptresses....
