CGiii Comment

Camp nonsense that is occasionally funny...due to Howerd's delivery.

As for direction...Bob Kellett should be applauded for 'directing' the same thing over and over again...what a career, what an extraordinary lack of talent.

The(ir) Blurb...

Roman slave Lurkio inadvertently becomes the possessor of a scroll naming the proposed assassins of the Emperor Nero. Administering to the participants of his master's orgy guests seems small compared to the trouble the scroll brings - but all are in for a nasty shock when Mount Vesuvius decides to erupt.
