Here comes Caligula ridding a senator. Possibly the most obscure reference they've ever done.

Wow, the Persian army looks much less tan than I expected of a bunch of guys from the Middle East. Who just came across the open ocean. With no shade. Before the invention of sunscreen.

Too bad The Film Crew only made 4 movies! Highly underrated and a great find.

What is it with these sword and sandal movies and scenes where scantily clad women do "ritual" dances? It's just a staple of the genre I guess.

So apparently, Philippides didn't run the first marathon, he did the first triathlon (with the horse-riding replacing the cycling).

Bill's food-fight description of the battle of Marathon was pretty accurate up until the part about the Spartans, who didn't arrive until the day after the Persian retreated to Asia.

At 44:45 - I'm 110% sure it's unethical to make a horse faceplant into the ground for the sake of your crappy movie. That hurt just to watch...

The horse from National Velvet was actually named Pie.

The thing I love about The Film Crew and Rifftrax is hearing the guys laugh. Especially Bill.

There are only two things this movie does well: brutality against horses and brutality against women. Boo to this movie, boo.
