Octavian intends to regain his empire by landing his army at Alexandria, besieging the city and capturing and executing the pair. However, while Octavian's army is bigger than Marc Antony's forces, he and Cleopatra have allies who can come to their aid. Both sides prepare for a final showdown. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Trivia 20th Century-Fox bought this film from its producers for $1 million and shelved it so it wouldn't draw potential customers away from its own upcoming "sword-and-sandal" epic, Cleopatra (1963). See more »
