Stewart Granger plays a serious, patriarchal Lot in this epic of the fall of Sodom and Gomorrah.Pier Angeli is her usual lovely and winning self as a beautiful slave girl, Anouk Aimee is smoldering, sexy and dangerous as the licentious Queen of the doomed cities, and Stanley Baker is a lecherous Prince, who seduces both of Lot's daughters. This film was made in the heavily censored 1950s style, so the sin named for Sodom is never even implied--instead, the Queen is the sexual predator,lusting after her many attractive slave girls, but a series of smoldering looks between them is all the movie can show. The men, on the other hand, are portrayed as a pack of sex-crazed overgrown teenagers, but their lust is strictly reserved for young and luscious girls. If you can stop laughing long enough, this is a fairly good Bible epic--the acting is much better than the script deserves, and by the end of the film, Pier Angeli's fate as a pillar of salt is touching. For fans of sand-and-sandal epics, but don't look for any historical accuracy here. Don't even look for any Biblical accuracy, either--the subsequent incest between Lot and his daughters that the Bible relates would have been unthinkable in this era of film. END

Even if the movie were far sillier than it is (and to be fair, it is extremely entertaining) it would be worth it for the exquisite Miklos Rozsa score, which ranks up there with his best (though, with Rozsa, there is no worst!) and includes some absolutely rapturous and sensuous music. A couple of decades before I ever finally saw the film on television, I had fallen in love with the (hard not to laugh when one says it) "Love Theme from Sodom and Gomorrah" encountered on a record of '60s epic music. Finally, much more recently, I found a CD of the score, and the theme remains as romantically seductive as ever. As for the film itself, it has a very watchable cast and remains a guilty pleasure - probably more so than if it had been more explicit in demonstrating its characters' sinfulness (other than their obvious sadism).

An early 60's Italian Bible epic, with decent acting and a fairly literate script, although it varies considerably from the biblical account. Rather than taking on the subject of homosexuality in Sodom and Gomorrah (probably unthinkable even in 1960's Italy), the film instead depicts the twin cities as centers of "evil in general", with everything from gambling to incest to death cults. There is some implied lesbianism on the part of the Queen of Sodom, but no reference at all to the men of the city wanting to "know" Lot's angelic visitors. Effects are good for the time period, and Stewart Grainger pours some genuine humility and human weakness into his Lot characer. Not bad as Bible epics go.

This film is way too long and outdrawn in its depiction of the fate of the two cities which are only briefly described in the Book of Genesis. It's another big-budget biblical film made in the sixties which has a lot of similarities to those make in the fifties; but as usual, quantity doesn't always mean quality. There are a lot of action scenes here, but also plenty of corny overacting from its top stars. Also, the eventual destruction of the cities takes too long to happen in order to consume everyone. The special effects used to show the destruction aren't the best.

This movie dispicted excellent costumes, makeup, background and script along with appropriate accents to make this film one that can be watched over and over again. I highly recommend it.
