Cleopatra (Vivien Leigh) hasn't been on the throne of the Pharaohs of Egypt very long when Julius Caesar (Claude Rains) pays a visit. Caesar finds the prospect of romance more tempting than he expected, since Cleopatra is a rare woman who is bright as well as beautiful. And for Cleopatra, a friendly relationship with the most powerful man in the world may pay dividends in the future.Written by

While I switched the channel, at a sudden I found Vivien Leigh's beautiful face. Even more that was my favorite Roman(Egypt)Movie. I start watched it, slowly fascinated by its witty, humorous dialogue, wonderful performances by all cast, especially the actor who plays Caesar, and Vivien Leigh.
Unlike other serious Roman Epic, I did burst into laughs so hard several times during the movie. with Modern eye, it could be seen as out of date, laughtable, especially in those scenes where the fight sequences. but I really entertained . I've never known what kind of personality The Caesar had. Neither do about Cleopatra. Caesar described as Human-God who's wise, witty, brave and generous enough to forgive even his enermy. this is not a love story, but a chemisty between these two were great, and delightful to watch.
