The Fall of the Roman Empire *Decent Ws Web Rip*



Sophia Loren plays Lucilla, in this leaden, dull historical "epic" about the last days of Rome's greatness. In this clip, Lucilla returns to the side of her beloved and ends up in chains and shackles along with him, doomed to be burned alive along with other traitors and criminals at the whim of the emperor Commodus .

Commodus taunts the doomed lovers and then offers a chance for all the condemned to escape if  Livius can defeat him in single combat. The men duel with all-metal spears inside a tight square made of Roman shields, as Lucilla looks on. Livius kills Commodus. A Roman commander throws a torch anyway and flames erupt, Livius saves Lucilla just in time, but the others are not so lucky.
