Rating: 3/5 -- Melodramatic, and camp as Christmas, but nothing like the disaster its reputation suggests.
Little White Lies
Rex Harrison is the undisputed hit of the show as a subtle and sardonic Julius Caesar... Full Review
[A] general muddle. Full Review
Taylor inhabits the role with a focussed but uninhibited imperiousness, as when she turns Cleopatra's entrance into Rome, aboard a giant rolling sphinx, into the ultimate red-carpet photo op. Full Review
…Colbert steamed up the screen….Enjoyably overstuffed… -- Rating: B
Rating: B -- It may not be as compelling and tightly edited as Ben-Hur, but Cleopatra is still a Hollywood epic that tells a grand story in a grand way. Save it for a night when the family feels like a four-hour spectacle. Full Review

The spectacular scenes were confused and oddly minuscule... Still and all, there was Elizabeth Taylor. At first I was disappointed, a large statement considering my expectations. Then I realized what she was up to and didn't regret my $1.25. Full Review
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.
