Subject: Next, Gore Vidal's "Julian"

Funny that Vidal should write a novel about one of the few strictly heterosexual emperors. A brilliant depiction of the fratricidal condition of the Flavians which led to the ascendancy of the Death-Cult of the Nazarene and the one brave man who tried to stop the avalanche of insanity!

Subject: What happened to this movie?

For once I'd like to see a realistic depiction of Classical Rome. So far, "A Funny Thing Happened to Me on the Way to the Forum" is the only one of which I am aware.

Please keep me informed about this movie. The book fr which it is adapted is one of the finest historical novels of all time in its power of recreating images of the Roman Empire at its acme and impresions of a great human wrestling with his responsibilities at its head.
