Our rating:

Jack Palance plays Attila the Hun, sweeping all before him as he advances on Rome. Jeff Chandler co-stars as the Roman general Marcian, charged with halting his assault by Princess Pulcheria (Ludmilla Tcherina, a French ballet dancer whose voice was dubbed by an anonymous American actress).

But as the heathens advance to the very gates of the Imperial City, it is not the force of arms that turns them back but a much higher power in Douglas Sirk's sweeping, colourful historical adventure.
