Sodom and Gomorrah (1962)

Biblical. USA/Italy/France. Starring Stewart Granger, Stanley Baker, Rik Battaglia, Pier Angeli, Giacomo Rossi-Stuart, Anthony Steffen, Gabriele Tinti & Daniele Vargas. Directed by Robert Aldrich & Sergio Leone (uncredited).

Wahlters Video (Sweden). English dubbed. Letterboxed.

This biblical film is not badly made, and has a fairly high budget (a real Hollywood director, a fading american movie star and all), but it's a little too stuffy and preachy for my taste. I guess it's a trapping of the genre and that biblical films simply isn't my thing. In this flick I rooted for the decadent sodomites and not the goody-two-shoes christians. The destruction scenes were pretty impressive though - engineered by Sergio Leone no less. 2/5
