Damon is a thief who begins to question his beliefs after he meets Pythias, a liberal Athenian who believes all men are brothers.

Fewer and fewer movies will be being shot on genuine film, because fewer and fewer movies building have film projectors. Except if there is an art house cinema nearby, any watching of older, or less well known, films, on actual film, is pretty much impossible. When is the last time that an older or obscure film was available at the local multi-theater megaplex? If whoever has a film copy of that older, little known film, does not think it is profitable enough to put it on DVD, there is little that can be done about it. Soon, the only way to look at films of any kind, will be through on-line streaming. Based on your point of view, this is possibly that natural progression of technology, or it's the end of the world.

SCARAMOUCHE

While "Damon and Pythias" is no Ben Hur, for a low-budget Sword and Sandal movie, it's very interesting. It emphasizes different aspects of Greek philosophy and throws both of its main characters into moral dilemmas. Damon has to overcome his fear of never trusting anyone... to the point of possibly sacrificing himself for a relative stranger. Pythias has to decide whether his honor or his family come first. The dialogue is pretty cheesy in parts and the acting fair, but the movie is enjoyable overall and should be more widely-viewed - especially for attempts that seem almost ahead of its time: making the audience do some thinking for itself!
