: : Speaking of cute little war flicks, has anyone seen Russell Crowe's performance in The Gladiator? Great film! Michael Mann was, at one point, planning a film on the life of Julius Ceasar, in which Russell Crowe was to portray the lead.

: Hi Elaine! Thanks for the info! Yes, I LOVED Gladiator, saw it several times, would love to see Michael Mann and Russell Crowe teamed to make magic...must admit Mel Gibson's-Patriot left me longing for Michael Mann's sure touch and DDL's acting talents!
: Did you see that amazon.com auctioned off all the props and costumes from Gladiator? Rather exciting though well out of my price range! Even that white suit of the Emperor's...wow!
: All the best,
Hi again, Claudia!
Had no idea amazon.com had been auctioning the 'emperor's robe' -
I can imagine the activity over that one!
Gladiator ... I really, really love this film. Very well made. I assume you've seen "The Insider" already? Michael Mann/Russell Crowe do make quite a team.
As for "The Patriot" ... no, not a 'great' film but I liked it.
