With an upcoming movie and several new books hitting the market, Cleopatra is all the rage. I’ve noticed that Cleopatra costumes are pretty hot this Halloween as well, always a great indicator of popularity.
Those of us with an “old school” Hollywood mindset know there’s only one name that should come to mind when you hear Cleopatra and that’s Elizabeth Taylor. Fans of the golden age of Hollywood and of Elizabeth Taylor, herself, will want to add the Cleopatra to their collection.
Richard Burton, Rex Harrison and Elizabeth Taylor star in one of the greatest screen spectacles ever made – the story of the Queen of the Nile and her love affairs with Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. The film is distinguished by superb performances from Burton and Harrison (nominated for an Oscar), but at its center is Elizabeth Taylor in one of the most glamorous roles of her career. Astounding in scope and grandeur, the picture won Oscars for cinematography, sets and special effects. It’s famous moments include moviedom’s most flamboyant entrance – Cleopatra’s dazzling arrival in Rome. Bolstered by a talented supporting cast and utterly stunning backdrops, here is a truly epic portrayal of the woman who conquered two of Rome’s greatest soldiers, affected the course of history, and became synonymous with beguiling beauty – Cleopatra.
Order your own Cleopatra today or buy it as a gift for a lucky Elizabeth Taylor fan.
