regarding movies employing the Latin language

Many years ago I saw a movie that was scripted completely in Latin, but I cannot recall the movie title. In fact, it was so long ago that I can't even remember what it was about. It must have been made in the 1970s, I'm pretty sure I saw it during that decade.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows of any database listing movies that use Latin in the dialog. I'm interested in pedagogical ...

Argh... lost book

Last week I saw a fantastic old little book which listed all the possible endings for parts of the Greek verb and parsed them. Great I thought. I'll buy it next time when I have some money on me.

This week is was gone! NOooooooooooooooooooooo!

Does anyone know what this book is called so I can track it down?

Stephen Duffy, The Way to Greek and Xenophon's Anabasis

Last week I came across a used book from the 1950s which is a beginners edition of Anabasis, prepared by Stephen V. Duffy.

He also wrote a Greek language textbook, called "The Way to Greek." I've seen a copy, and it's quite a nice book. I'd like to get a copy for myself, but haven't seen one for sale. Any ideas?

'Quod'

Caesar Gallic War I.3

"In eo itinere, persuadet Castico, Sequano, cuius pater regnum in Sequanis moltos annos obtinuerat et a senatu 'populi Romani amicus' appellatus erat, ut regnum in civititate sua occuparet quod pater habuerat"

Theos hn o logos: God, godly or divine?

Can I translate

Theos hn o logos: the Word was divine ?

Instead of The Word was God?


False friends

Latin is a deceptive beast.There it is, written in words we can so easily recognise-even having the decency to be written in our own alphabet.But set about translating and you soon find you are not dealing with any pushover. There are so many words that have a similar look to English words which you think you can skim over -"guess it,it can't be far wrong"-then you just lose the whole flow of the sentence.Later you ...

So...anyone going to see Troy?

I'm going to view this with an open mind. I have no objections so far, because I haven't seen it. I also know that Hollywood isn't going to make a movie about the Trojan War without a Trojan Horse; I can live with that, even if it didn't happen at the same point of the war as the Iliad does.

So, pre-release thoughts, anyone? Comments? Questions? Horror stories?
