This 1961 Epic was Hollywood's first attempt at recreating the Battle of Thermopylae. This version is supposedly what influenced Frank Miller to make his graphic novel. Though this telling is not without its own undertones of propaganda (in this case Cold War hyperbole as opposed to War on Terror rhetoric), this film suffers far less inaccuracies. It acknowledges the efforts of other Greeks such as the Athenians and Thespians and at least depicts the Persians as humans, and Caucasians at that.
