Spartacus is a 1960 American historical drama movie directed by Stanley Kubrick and it is based upon the novel by the same name written by Howard Fast.
There was a phrase in the movie, “Spartacus” starring Kirk Douglas as Spartacus, which has captured movie goers imagination and is now part of the American lexicon.
Spartacus was a lowly slave who had an indomitable spirit which yearned for freedom. He led a successful rebellion by raising an army of slaves to oppose the Roman tyranny. After the army of former Roman slaves, led by Spartacus, was finally defeated in a decisive battle by several legions of the Roman Empire, a Roman general stands before the captured surviving members of the slave army and demands that they turn over Spartacus. If the slaves identify Spartacus, they live.
