Caesar and Cleopatra (1945) Cleopatra hasn't been on the throne of the pharoahs of Egypt very long when Julius Caesar pays a visit. Caesar finds the prospect of romance more tempting than he expected, since Cleopatra is a rare woman who is bright as well as beautiful. And for Cleopatra, a friendly relationship with the most powerful man in the world may pay dividends in the future. Director: Gabriel Pascal Writers: George Bernard Shaw (play), George Bernard Shaw (screenplay) Stars: Claude Rains, Vivien Leigh and Stewart Granger Parts of this film are hilarious! http://archive.org/details/Caesar_And_Cleopatra_ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038390/
