Features

• Commentary by F. X. Feeney -Filmmaker/Writer Feeney explores the genesis of one of MGM's most glorious, grand-scale productions, a movie that took nearly twenty years to make and the one that helped launch the age of the 50's Hollywood epic blockbusters.
• In the Beginning: Quo Vadis and the Genesis of the Biblical Epic - Although filmmakers have always found inspiration in the Bible, no one ever quite made a movie like Quo Vadis, the definitive Roman spectacle and the production that launched the 50's into an arena of mega-blockbuster epics. This documentary walks the road as long and complex as the film itself, from its roots as a Nobel Peace Prize-winning bestseller to its various ground-breaking adaptations to its place as the most daring and lavish film that MGM, and Louis B. Mayer, dared to undertake.
