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.

Whuuh~ Yeah, did you get to the scene where they are all terribly drunk at Nero's... uhm, party? A shame they didn't put this in the movie xD

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!

yeah, and in the book they're all very drunk and do stupid things C: In the movie it's rather tame...

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

I don't think so :) I love the colors and they weren't there in in 50s photo ;)

lol true. I just mean to resolution. It's very clear which gives it a sense of it's an actual color photo :dance:
