Trivia

For its U.S. release, Paramount changed the title to the more dynamic sounding "Duel of the Titans." There was also the concern that most Americans would not know who Romulus and Remus were. See more »

Quotes

Romulus: Mother. Speak to us mother.
Remus: We've destroyed the city but we'll come back and build a bigger and better one.
Rea Silvia: [as she lays dying] No. Not here. This city has been destroyed through fire. For it is written you will found an immortal city on the other side of the great marsh beyond the mountain of fire in the valley of the seven hills

a pretty good one...
11 August 2010 | by Majid-HamidSee all my reviews

Well..this not the best of Steve Reeves or Gordon Scott movies, but definitely not the worse! There are plenty of worse movies outside there, so please do not judge the Italian movies in a bad way...TROY (Brad Pitt) is 1000 times much much much more worse compared to the Italian movies! Duel Of Titans is simply one of the better movies, and please check out for this one. The acting is good, the dubbed English audio is not very bad and moreover i've got a good dubbed audio for this movie! I don't know whether this movie originally use the Italian or English language..or maybe both??? No matter what kind of language they use in this movie, this is still a good movie. Good acting from both Steve Reeves and Gordon Scott, and fine storyline and plot. Not the best, but still a pretty good one. Buy it, surely you won't regret! 8/10 stars
