I have been a big fan of history related movies and was very excited for Pompeii. I was first introduced to the tragedy of Pompeii through my grandparent’s collection of National Geographic. The actual Pompeii is the longest continual archaeological dig in history.
Rumor has it that the screen write for this play came about from the following picture from the archaeological dig known as “The Lovers”. (Footnote3: for extra archaeological Pompeii images.)
