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


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.
