Plot Summary

Brutus, Cassius, and other high-ranking Romans murder Caesar, because they believe his ambition will lead to tyranny. The people of Rome are on their side until Antony, Caesar's right-hand man, makes a moving speech. The conspirators are driven from Rome, and two armies are formed: one side following the conspirators; the other, Antony. Antony has the superior force, and surrounds Brutus and Cassius, but they kill themselves to avoid capture. Written by John Oswalt

Trivia This movie was shot in just 35 days, using some of the sets from Quo Vadis (1951), which were dismantled, flown from Rome to Hollywood, and then reassembled for this film. Producer John Houseman confirmed that it was never intended that the movie be shot in color, as he and director Joseph L. Mankiewicz wanted it to have the urgency of a newsreel, not to look like a costume epic. See more »

Quotes Marc Antony: You gentle Romans. Gentle Romans, hear me. Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears! I come to *bury* Caesar, not to praise him. The evil that men do lives after them, The good is oft interred with their bones; So let it be with Caesar.
