A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1966)

Film details


Crazy screen version of the successful musical comedy of the same name. The scene is an unfashionable suburb of ancient Rome and the central character is Peseudolus, a fat and scheming slave to Senex, his wife Domina, and their callow son Hero.
