Spartacus (Universal 1960)

What a great film. Have you seen it, or have you just seen bits and pieces of it on TV? There's a difference you know! Great conservative flickr here folks! One man leads a rag tag bunch against the most ruthless government the world has ever seen! And to think Kirk Douglas was a super lib too! Oh well, as I have stated before on this blog, some of the biggest libs made some of the most right wing flicks! This is why you should thank yours truly for showing you the way...hee...hee.

Here is a review from IMDb...

The rebellious Thracian Spartacus, born and raised a slave, is sold to Gladiator trainer Batiatus. After weeks of being trained to kill for the arena, Spartacus turns on his owners and leads the other slaves in rebellion. As the rebels move from town to town, their numbers swell as escaped slaves join their ranks. Under the leadership of Spartacus, they make their way to southern Italy, where they will cross the sea and return to their homes. Meanwhile, in Rome, the slave revolt has become a deciding factor in the power struggle between two senators: the republican Gracchus and the militarist Crassus, each of whom sees the fortunes of the rebellion as the key to his own rise to power or humiliating defeat. As the two statesmen attempt to aid, hinder and manipulate the rebels for their own benefit, Spartacus and his followers press on toward freedom.

Freedom at any matter what the odds. You think we have it rough with Obama taking over? Put yourself in the shoes (or sandals) of the folks back then. Would you fight for your freedom?

Well...would you?

I don't think that many Americans today would fight for their freedom. Because, the majority of Americans were born with freedom they cannot imagine a world without it. They have no idea how precious it is.
If our freedom was taken, a brave few would fight, however I believe that number is becoming less and less every year.

I love this film and have shown it several times to my Latin and World History classes.
