The print by MGM is presented in an 1:85 anamorphic format, though I suspect the original was shot in a 2:35 aspect ratio, but you get a picture that will fill out your entire flat screen panel. It is sharp with good color and you won't miss anything on the sides (of the screen).
Triple your value here, ...although Ulysses certainly does not go to the same gym that the actors who play the other two title roles do.
Just about all the expected inclusions you'd expect from this genre, .....with the one noticeable exception.

Then there's the usual storm, blowing the ship off course and destroying it. Survivors, ...including Herc and Ulysses (of course!Read more ›

I remember this movie as a kid, when my father took my brother and I to Sherwood Twin Drive-In, located in Dayton, Ohio. Brings back a lot of good memories. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
If you like old biblical type of movies you'll like this one.
It's 1:85 widescreen and the print transfer is good.
I loved sword-and-sandal movies when I was a kid. Not an award-winner, but kitschy and a great way to reconnect with my youth cinematically.Published 9 months ago by Perry Rosenstein
