Movie Info

Charleton Heston directed, wrote, and starred in this adaptation of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra, a historical drama that attempts to bring an epic visual style to the Bard's original stage play. The story concerns Marc Antony's attempts to rule Rome while maintaining a relationship with the queen of Egypt (Hildegarde Neil), which began while Antony was still married. Now he is being forced to marry the sister of his Roman co-leader, and soon the conflict leads to war. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Antony And Cleopatra

Shakespeare's historical drama regarding Cleopatra and Marc Antony is given a grandiose and epic take by writer, director, and leading actor Charlton Heston. While respectful towards the Bard's script, the movie is definitely going for the grand, sweeping aura one notes in famous Heston films such as Ben Hur or The Ten Commandments. It's a bit overlong and its execution falls short of its ambitions, but Antony and Cleopatra was definitely a labor or love and it should be a pleasurable experience for Shakespeare buffs.

This is only for Shakespeare-O-philes. Yes, this is based on the play, just like the Marlon Brando version of Julius Caesar (1953). Charlton Heston wrote the screenplay and was the director.
