Eunice -- Quo Vadis by TsarevnaMaria Eunice -- Quo Vadis by TsarevnaMaria
Eunice, played by Marina Berti in the 1951 classic, Quo Vadis
Starring: Robert Taylor, Deborah Kerr and Peter Ustinov

--A slave from Greece, who is sold to the Roman senator, Petronius (a close confidant of Emperor Nero). They fall madly in love with each other. They die in each other's arms after the burning of Rome.

"Quo Vadis" means "Whither goest Thou" in Latin. It's meaning comes from the message that Jesus Christ said to Peter called Simon:
---Quo Vadis, Domine? (Whither goest Thou, Lord?)
---Romam vado interum crucifigi. (I go to Rome to be curcified a second time.)

Lovely image.  Petronius (whose written work on Nero's empire, "The Satyricon" still exists) was played by the British actor Leo Genn.

You mean the part where Lygia is forced to go to that feast with Marcus in the beginning? Yes, that was funny. :rofl: And yes! I agree completely!

Yes, that is the case.
The movie would be 6 hours old, I think, if they went by the book.

haha! Thanks so much.
The only reason it looks good is because it was taken with an "advanced" camera (1950s camera) versus the 1900s camera :P
