Storyline

Protests break out in Corinth against Roman domination, injuring Caius Vinicius, a Roman centurion. He's rescued by Hebe -- daughter of the anti-Roman governor, Critolaus -- who's being unsuccessfully wooed by the governor's second-in-command, the villainous Diaeus. Smitten, Hebe sends the handsome Roman to recuperate at the home of Callicrates, a political moderate. Artemide, wife of Callicrates, also falls for Caius Vinicus but when he spurns her, she has him arrested and imprisoned. Hebe then agrees to marry Diaeus if he will spare the Roman's life but Caius Vinicius is soon freed by Callicrates and his allies, just as a Roman army arrives to battle Corinthian forces.

The Greek province of Corinth rebels against its Roman rulers...

Based on real-life events that occurred during the time of Caesar, THE CONQUEROR OF CORINTH makes the rebels out to be the bad guys for some reason but before the city is torched with cheesy special effects, there's enough beefcake, cheesecake, and battle scenes to satisfy any genre fan. John Drew Barrymore (wearing little more than a micro-mini tunic and a "Snidely Whiplash" sneer) plays Basil Rathbone to star Jacques Sernas' Errol Flynn as he tosses random enemies into a pit of snakes he keeps for just such occasions. Lovely Gianna Maria Canale (a "Miss Italy 1947" runner-up who lost to Lucia Bosé) heats things up as an over-sexed cougar who turns Sernas' wounded centurion over to the enemy after he spurns her advances and her duel (dagger vs. bullwhip) with the hero's main squeeze is a lowbrow highlight -as is a muscular Gordon Mitchell getting rubbed down by his hirsute manservant. Unfortunately, there's no "conqueror of Corinth", per se.
