tinto brass's infamous soft-porn roman epic stars malcolm mcdowell as the deranged titular emperor, and provides an unexpected entry on the cvs of a number of well-respected actors. author gore vidal provides the (uncredited) screenplay, which envisages first century rome, under the rule of tiberius (peter o'toole) and caligula (mcdowell), as a hotbed of sin and depravity. the film remained in limbo for two years as brass wrangled over the right to a final cut. three separate versions of the film are featured here: the uk theatrical release, the full uncut version (available for the first time), and the alternative cut, which substitutes the more graphically explicit scenes with alternative takes.
