Synopsis:
A spectacular account of Attila the Hun's final attack on Christian Rome. Jack Palance is in full swagger as 'Scourge of God' Attila the Hun, who seeks to conquer the Roman Empire's 5th century power bases of Rome and Constantinople. Centurion Marcian (Jeff Chandler) is captured by Attila on his way to Constantinople to warn the Eastern Emperor Theodosius of an attack by the barbarian tribes. Attila, impressed by his enemy's wiliness, honesty and courage, is powerless to prevent his escape. The two men meet again at the court of Theodosius (George Dolenz), where they fall under the spell of the Emperor's scheming sister Pulcheria (Ludmilla Tcherina).
At a feast for the barbarian kings, Theodosius and Attila strike a deal that Constantinople will not be sacked - so Attila turns his attentions to Rome. As Attila prepares his assault, he is wracked by foreboding as he recalls a childhood vision of his death beneath the shadow of a cross. When he learns of a betrayal by his daughter Kubra (Rita Gam), it seems his fate is sealed. Douglas Sirk's first foray in Cinemascope is both lavish and savvy, with Palance's Hun a fine balance of ferocity, vulnerability and doubt.
