The box cover of a 1992 VHS edition (issued by Front Row Entertainment) has a still of Charlton Heston
posing proudly in Roman uniform in front of a ruined temple, and the curious caption "Charlton Heston stars as Julius Caesar--General, Statesman and Historian of Ancient Rome." In fact, Heston does not play Gaio Giulio Cesare
