The Ancient World on DVD

Most people won’t notice that Ulysses, starring Kirk Douglas, is now on DVD, and though it may not have the computer effects of the 1997 version or the stop-motion animation of Ray Harryhausen that turned a few sword and sandal films into classics, this Ulysses has that Old Hollywood magic that feels like theater.  (And check out the sultry Silvana Mangano playing both the sorceress Circe and the devoted wife Penelope.)
