Trivia

Peter Eyre is credited as Cinna the Poet, implying that the play's "Act III, Scene 3" was filmed but cut. Eyre does not appear or is not recognizable in the film as it now exists, although there is a dead body (presumably this character) that the camera emphasizes during the riot. See more »

Goofs

During the murder in the Senate, the blood on Gaio Giulio Cesare's face shifts position, color, and at times entirely disappears between shots. See more »

What a dud!
11 October 1999 | by (Pa.) – See all my reviews



This has got to be one of the worst adaptations of a Shakespeare play ever made. Heston swaggers and bellows as Antony, Robards is out of place in shakespeare, and the usually exceptional Richard Johnson is woefully miscast as Cassius. Only Gielgud and Rigg in their brief appearances bring this film to life. the original film was much better . Gielgud was a great Cassius and Mason a wonderfully tragic Brutus. Both films however lack a strong Antony. For those who do not know the original play this version may be passable but to those who do its just pure drivel.
