The Epic That Never Was

This Dirk Bogarde-narrated account and partial reconstruction of Sternberg's failed 1937 attempt to film Robert Graves' I, Claudius is a fascinating account of one of the great 'lost' works of film history.

With glimpses of Charles Laughton's extraordinary performance, and Merle Oberon's more troubled role, this is a unique archive of one of cinema's notorious abandoned projects.
