Description by

Among the sword-and-sandal epics produced in Italy following the 1959 U.S. box-office success of Hercules, Gold for the Caesars follows the popular formula: an American star (Jeffrey Hunter), voluptuous temptresses, slaves, tyranny and exciting displays of muscle-ripping combat. Gold for the Caesars centers on a slaved named Lacer (Hunter) and his beloved, the mistress of Maximus, the ruthless Roman proconsul of Spain. Charged with managing a vast gold-mining operation in the middle of a bloody Celtic uprising, Lacer fights men, nature and his conflicted heart.

Review of Gold for the Caesars

Pro-Consul and Governor of Spain Maximus has two obsessions. Emperor Domitian is dying and Maximus desperately wishes to succeed Domitian as emperor. To get elected to such a high position, one needs a considerable amount of money. (Some things don’t change.) He, therefore, disobeys his orders to drive the Celts from their lands and instead makes a deal with them: he won’t invade their territory if they allow him to send a mining party into their lands to reopen an old Phoenician gold mine from which he hopes to extract the necessary riches.
Maximus’ second obsession is his slave and mistress Penelope. Recently she has been far too affectionate with another slave, Lacer. Maximus would kill Lacer but, unfortunately from Maximus’ viewpoint, Lacer is Maximus’ engineer and is needed to begin mining operations. Maximus sends slaves and a small military detachment under the command of Centurion Rufus into Celt controlled territory as agreed upon. Rufus has orders to let Lacer start mining operations and then kill him.
This is a sword and sandal movie, a genre popular in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s. I would agree with reviewers who write that the acting is considerably above average for this ilk of motion picture and is worth a look.
