Before all the Cleo movies we saw it turns out that Caesar (Claude Rains) made a visit to Alexandria. He casually comes in contact with Cleo (Vivien Leigh.) They seem to hit it off for an old man and a less than mature girl. Caesar teaches Cleo the ropes of leadership. There are scuffles and backstabbing; the even burn "The Library". What will become of this relationship?
This is an intriguing 1945 movie with all the biggie actors of the time. However it looks like they threw in anyone that could sound English. I spent as much time identifying the different actors as I did watching the play.
I have a copy of the play and am just now getting around to reading it.Caesar and Cleopatra by George Bernard Shaw
