The Egyptian queen Cleopatra, a firm ruler and military tactician, embarks on a ruthless rise to power. She twice marries brothers, killing each of them as well as a sister. Romantic alliances with the much-older Roman honchos Julius Caesar and Marc Antony help her solidify power, but her dalliance with Antony undoes both of them.
- The infamous 1963 "Cleopatra," the historical epic that starred Elizabeth Taylor, Rex Harrison and Richard Burton. It was hugely expensive and considered a flop but was ultimately nominated for best picture and won four Oscars.
