Caligula (film)

Caligula is a 1979 film directed by Tinto Brass[?] (with additional scenes directed by Bob Guccione[?]), about the Roman Emperor Gaius Caesar Germanicus; also known as "Caligula". Caligula is loosely based on a screenplay by Gore Vidal and co-financed[?] by Penthouse. The producers were Guccione and Franco Rosselini[?]. Several of Caligula's scenes are considered to be pornographic and the film advertised itself as "the most controversial film in history. Only one movie dares to show the perversion behind Imperial Rome...".

Caligula was censored in several countries, an original runtime of 210 minutes was reduced to 102, in the US, and 103, in the UK.
