"The Last Days of Sodom and Gomorrah"

Sergio Leone Week! continues at Trailers from Hell, with director Brian Trenchard-Smith introducing "The Last Days of Sodom and Gomorrah." Leone was an (uncredited) second unit director on this epic potboiler directed by Robert Aldrich, whose own appetite for lurid scenarios is on full display (it was released the same year as WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE). This was the last of the great Miklos Rozsa’s truly magisterial scores (he replaced Dimitri Tiomkin and considered the resulting film “tacky”). The production design was by Ken Adam (who was working on DR. NO the same year). Currently unavailable in DVD in the US.

    Excellent. This is better than having to sit through the entire movie again. (And I'm a big fan of Aldrich.) Trenchard-Smith is one of the better commentators in the Trailers from Hell series. And it's movies like this that benefit most from this kind of treatment.
