Cabiria (1914)

Gabriele_D'Annunzio_Cabiria.jpg

"Cabiria is a 1914 silent movie from the early years of Italy's movie industry, directed by Giovanni Pastrone."

Apart from being a classic on its own, the film is also notable for being the first film in which the long-running film character Maciste makes his debut.

The movie is based on Emilio Salgari's 1908 novel Cartagine in fiamme (Carthage in Flames) and Gustave Flaubert's 1862 novel Salammbo and is set in ancient Carthage during the period of the Second Punic War (218-202 BC).

A summary, posters and the film in its entirety.

Special interest: Looking for something "more" than Set, the Snake God? Have you heard the news about Moloch? The Temple of Moloch and the invocation to Moloch for your consideration starting at 23:13.
