Facts about

The title "Morituri" is Latin which can be translated as "we who are about to die", from the traditional salute of Roman gladiators in the arena, "Morituri te salutamus" (We, who are about to die, salute you!)
The film's opening camera shot is a close-up of a stone plaque which reads "Morituri Te Salutant" (Those who are about to die salute you) which it is stated in the film as being a Roman Gladiator's salute to Caesar.
This is not the first movie with the title "Morituri" nor is it the first World War II movie with this title. Morituri, a German film, was made seventeen years prior to this movie, and it was the first German film made after the war which was about the Second World War.
