Cleopatra (1963) Poster


Roddy McDowall: Octavian - Caesar Augustus



  • Octavian : Is that how one says it? As simply as that. "Mark Antony is dead. Lord Antony is dead." "The soup is hot; the soup is cold." "Antony is living; Antony is dead." Shake with terror when such words pass your lips, for fear they be untrue and Antony'd cut out your tongue for the lie! And if true, for your lifetime boast that you were honored to speak his name even in death. The dying of such a man, must be shouted, screamed! It must echo back from the corners of the universe. "Antony is dead! Mark Antony of Rome lives no more!"

  • Germanicus : [in the Senate of Rome]  Antony! Stay not too long in Alexandria!

    [general laughter from the rest of the Senate] 

    Caesar Augustus : Germanicus, stay not too long in Rome.

    [the Senate laughs even louder as Germanicus leaves] 

  • Marc Antony : This son of Caesar, does it upset you?

    Caesar Augustus : No.

    Marc Antony : You were so shut at the mouth just now one would think your words were are precious to you as your gold.

    Caesar Augustus : Like my gold, I used them where they are worth most.

    Marc Antony : Ah! And your virtue?

    [Leans over to him] 

    Marc Antony : My friend has a friend.

    Caesar Augustus : That too.
