The 300 Spartans (1962) IMDb

Commentary

Spartans had to be warriors, because their society was so incredibly repressive that its slaves would otherwise revolt, which could possibly be seen as subtext in the darker 2006 remake. It undermines this more idealistic film. Very poor romantic subplot, sterile fights, and negligible accuracy.
