Cleopatra (1963) 2 x DVD9
Having been driven out of the palace by her jealous brother, Cleopatra regains her title as Egypt’s queen thanks to the intervention of the visiting Roman emperor, Julius Caesar. Determined to unite Egypt and Rome into one great empire, Cleopatra seduces Caesar and bears his child. In the wake of her triumphant entry into Rome, Caesar is assassinated, and Cleopatra turns her attentions to his general Mark Antony. Their union of love grows so strong that the Empire is weakened by it, leaving the ambitious Octavian poised to strike.

Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Rex Harrison star in this sweeping tale of power and betrayal--the legendary story of the Queen of the Nile and her conquest of Julius Ceasar and Marc Anthony. Here is the truly unforgettable portrayal of the beguiling beauty who seduced two of Rome's greatest soldiers and changed the course of history. Breathtaking in scope and grandeur, the picture won Oscars for cinematography, art direction, costumes, sets and special effects.
