Quo Vadis is a question and an answer.  It's Latin for "Where are you going?"  And its the answer to where movie-goers were going in 1952.  This big-budget spectacular of ancient Rome (recipient of 8 Academy Award® nominations including Best Picture) was the year's #1 box-office hit and its studio's biggest success since Gone With the Wind.  

Robert Taylor plays Marcus Vinicius, commander of Rome's 14th Legion and in love with Lygia (Deborah Kerr), a member of the Christian sect accused of undermining Roman values.  Peter Ustinov, wrapped in purple-robed petulance, is the all-powerful Nero.  The destinies of these three and of the Empire play out in a tale whose visual highlights include the parade of triumphant legions, the burning of Rome and the martyrdom of Christians before cheering, bread-and-circus throngs.
