great movie!
5 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I also saw this movie on TV in 1976 when I was eleven. It was the first time I learned anything about Cleopatra and Caesar, and it was the first time I saw Genevieve Bujold on film. Her portrayal of the Egyptian Seductress made me an instant fan, of both Bujold, and Cleopatra, as well as Egyptian History. I also immensely enjoyed Alec Guiness's Caesar. I clipped the newspaper advertisement out and saved it until the mid 1990's when I threw away a lot of old things from the past. I recently wanted to rent this film but have found it is not available on DVD. This needs to be remedied! I have never seen a re-airing of this on TV unfortunately...so great was its impact on me that I remember it 30 years later.
