Il magnifico gladiatore (AKA: The Magnificent Gladiator) is a 1964 film about a hero named "Attalus" (or anachronistically "Hercules" in the English version), who is captured by Roman soldiers on the frontier during the reign of Gallienus (AD 253-268). Attalus is brought back to Rome and forced to fight in the arena as a gladiator, but once there, he becomes embroiled in a plot to over-throw the emperor.

This film was written and directed by Alfonso Brescia.
