Quo Vadis (1951)

Quo Vadis has been filmed several times. This 1951 version stars Robert Taylor and Deborah Kerr, Also starring are Peter Ustinov and Abraham Safaer (who has an original series Star Trek connection). The music is by Miklos Rozsa (King of Kings (1961), The Power). Walter Pidgeon is the narrator.

Veoh has this in 2 parts, but you have to download their viewer to watch them: part 1, part 2

The New York Times doesn't like it and closes its review with this:
we have a suspicion that this picture was not made for the overly sensitive or discriminate. It was made, we suspect, for those who like grandeur and noise—and no punctuation. It will probably be a vast success.

Variety is more positive.
