Rating: 3.5/5 -- It's fun to watch -- no, it's stunning to watch, because of all the money that DeMille and company threw at the screen. Full Review

The master showman Cecil B. DeMille's Cleopatra (1934) is a modernistic 1930s costume spectacle that reshapes the Cleopatra story Full Review

[T]he film's charm lies in its brazen 1930s quality, right from the gilded art-deco Egyptian settings and Travis Banton's nightclub-on-the-Nile costuming to the snap-an-crackle of wit that makes Colbert's Cleopatra as much feisty dame as femme fatale.

Rating: 4/5 -- Typical overblown DeMille "historical" spectacle.

Rating: B+ -- Despite many incongruous elements, like treating the text as soap opera and the dialogue as gossip, this is one of DeMille's most enjoyable films, superior to Mankiewicz 1963 version, in large part due to Claudette Colbert's sexy interpretation. Full Review

Claudette Colbert is Egypt's queen and doesn't take it too seriously. Full Review

Product Description:

Grandiose, epic, and vintage Hollywood. Claudette Colbert stars as the captivating and powerful Queen of Egypt in this classic Hollywood film. When Julius Caesar, the leader of the Roman Empire, succumbs to the charms of the sultry Cleopatra, he creates a scandal big enough to shake the marble pillars of Rome. The ruler pays dearly for his romance, for the outraged Roman Senate repudiates him and the fickle Cleopatra decides to protect her interests by bestowing her affections on her former lover's rival, Marc Antony. Remade in 1963 with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
