Synopsis:
Lavish Italian-made adaptation of Homer's epic poem 'The Odyssey', starring Kirk Douglas as seafaring hero Ulysses, who is trying to return home to his faithful wife Penelope (Silvano Magnano) after fighting in the Trojan Wars. However, owing to his arrogance following his military victories, the gods have doomed him to journey aimlessly across the seven seas until he learns to be humble. His long and eventful journey includes a battle with a cyclops, an encounter with the deadly singing Sirens, an interlude with enchantress Circe (also played by Silvano Magnano) and a brush with the underworld.
