Miles Gloriosus

Here is a short clip from the movie A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1966): Entry of Miles Gloriosus (also on repeat)

It’s a perfectly played vainglorious braggart soldier stock character from ancient Roman comedies. Enjoy. :slight_smile:


For shame, I’ve never seen that musical! Great entry, it really captures the spirit of Plautus’ comedy. This movie is now on my list :smile:

Hysterical… feel like I should be walking around for days yelling “stand aside everyone,… I take large steps”… though no-one else will get the reference.
