Filmmaker Enrico Guazzoni was behind many early Italian historical epics, including the internationally acclaimed film Quo Vadis? Guazzoni started out as a painter and decorator. In addition to directing, he often wrote his own scripts and designed all the sets and the costumes. Guazzoni continued directing through the early 1940s but was never as successful with talkies as he was with silent films.
