The Sequel to "The Robe"
Demetrius and Messalina
A Gladiator in the Roman Arena
This enormously successful sequel to "The Robe" continues the story of Demetrius (Victor Mature), the Greek slave who, after the death of his master, is sentenced to train as a gladiator in the Roman arena. There, his newfound Christian faith is put to the test when he has to contend not only with the swordsmen and wild beasts of the arena, but also the evil and sensuous Messalina (Susan Hayward) and the mad emperor Caligula (Jay Robinson). Crammed with astonishing action and fight sequences, this heroic epic is not to be missed!

This has always been one of our favorite movies about the early Christians. As far as we know, it is the only movie of its kind that tells the story of a backslidden Christian. Also it has one of our all-time favorite actors, Michael Rennie, wonderfully cast as the Apostle Peter. Made as a sequel to "The Robe", this is only one of three or four sequels ever made that is even better than the original---and the original is excellent!
