Teodora imperatrice di Bisanzio

Great final scene in Riccardo Freda's famous peplum. This is the only good value in a disappointed film.
The running time  is too short. IMDB says that runs 124 minutes, but the Italian print shown at RAI runs less than 85 min. I guess IMDB is wrong, like always, with European data.
The plot will need 3 hours at least, and certainly another script. Historical is wrong, sets are limited and cheap, but this scene is a masterpiece.
