... DeMille's lavish but stilted film... is all production value and no style.

It's fun to watch -- no, it's stunning to watch, because of all the money that DeMille and company threw at the screen.

The master showman Cecil B. DeMille's Cleopatra (1934) is a modernistic 1930s costume spectacle that reshapes the Cleopatra story

Despite many incongruous elements, like treating the text as soap opera and the dialogue as gossip, this is one of DeMille's most enjoyable films, superior to Mankiewicz 1963 version, in large part due to Claudette Colbert's sexy interpretation.
