Cleopatra (1963)

In this expensive, over-budget sumptuous epic by director Joseph L. Mankiewicz, causing scandal when Burton and Taylor became scandalously and romantically involved with each other during filming:

  • Queen of Egypt Cleopatra's (Elizabeth Taylor) seduction of Roman leader Julius Caesar (Rex Harrison)
  • the pageantry of the spectacular, lavish triumphant entrance scene of Queen Cleopatra into the Eternal City of Rome to meet with her husband Caesar, prefaced by a bare-breasted (with pasties) dancing girl
Triumphant Entry into Rome
  • the elaborately-costumed Queen's riding at the climax of the procession on a giant black Sphinx behind a processional of tribal dancers and chariots
  • the later love affair between Marc Antony (Richard Burton) and Cleopatra
