The Last Days of Pompeii


Ernest B. Schoedsack
Production Company

Blacksmith becomes a gladiator to help pay doctor bills for his wife, then ends up raisng the son of a man he killed in the arena. Journeys to Judea to see Pontius Pilate and bumps into Christ and arrives back in Pompeii just in time for...

Not bad hokum with a hero who has to find redemption, twice, and good special effects by King Kong's Willis O'Brien amongst others. I'm not sure you could bump into the big J and still be young enough to watch Vesuvius erupt in AD 79 though.
