In the wrong director's hand, this tale of a slave turned gladiator turned freedom fighter could have ended up on the dust heap of cheesy Hollywood B-movies. Instead, Stanley Kubrick took the helm and cast Kirk Douglas as the hero of the arena. The result is a classic piece of cinema co-starring Tony Curtis, Laurence Olivier, Peter Ustinov and Charles Laughton. It's also loaded with great fight sequences and memorable moments. You won't be able to resist standing up and proudly proclaiming, "I am Spartacus." Don't worry you'll know when to say this!
