CLEOPATRA (1963)
1963, 20th Century Fox, 248 min, USA, Dir: Joseph Mankiewicz

Cleopatra (Elizabeth Taylor) attempts to secure her power as Queen of Egypt by charming Julius Caesar (Rex Harrison) and Mark Antony (Richard Burton) with whom she has a stormy love affair, but Egypt is finally integrated into the Roman Empire. Directed and co-written by Joseph Mankiewicz, this epic historical drama boasts spectacular sets and costumes that must be seen. Cleopatra's spectacular entry into Rome with her golden Sphinx pulled by thousands is a real cinematic moment!
