There is a great deal of palace intrigue and skullduggery going on about Cleopatra and her arch-rival brother Ptolemy. Some excitement is generated when the queen is imprisoned and a devoted lovestruck soldier risks his life to free her. After several perilous shifts in the power struggle, the film ends at that entrancing legendary moment when she is smuggled into Caesar's presence rolled in a carpet. Julius is bemused. Surprisingly, 20th Century Fox bought out the rights to this film to keep it in the shadows, so it wouldn't compete with their blockbuster Cleopatra a year later.  Frankly, they need not have bothered.

DVD-R is in dubbed English with no subtitles. Approx. 90 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
