A curiosity. In my opinion, actress Hildegard Neil is no Cleopatra but if you can forget this casting error, 'Antony and Cleopatra' is worth a look. The production budget being insufficient, the sea and land battles look a little bit cheap but actors are great. It was nonetheless a Bomb at the box-office and the film didn't make it to the USA. Already forgotten.
