Caesar And Cleopatra DVD
Alec Guinness and Genevieve Bujold stars in this highly acclaimed 1976 television adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's best-loved works. On campaign in Egypt, the aging Julius Caesar (Alec Guinness) stumbles across the beautiful, young and capricious Cleopatra (Genevieve Bujold) while pondering the riddle of the sphinx. Ceaser promises to turn the young girl into a true queen for Egypt and tutors her in the ways of power – but Rome’s ways are not Egypt’s ways. He quickly discovers that he may have conquered Egypt but can never hope to rule Cleopatra. Childish, impulsive, flirtatious, Cleopatra is her own woman – and a good deal more dangerous than Ceaser realises… Available for the first time on DVD, Caesar & Cleopatra boasts a truly outstanding performance from Alec Guinness as the tragic, kindly and cynical Caesar and a sensuous, complex performance from Genevieve Bujold to rival any other screen portrayal of Cleopatra.
