Cleopatra (12-Jun-1963)

Director: Joseph L. Mankiewicz

Writers: Joseph L. Mankiewicz; Ranald MacDougall; Sidney Buchman

Based on a book: The Life and Times of Cleopatra by C. M. Franzero

Music Composed and Conducted by: Alex North

Producer: Walter Wanger

Keywords: Romantic Drama, Ancient Egypt

Cleopatra becomes Queen of Egypt upon the death of her brother Ptolemy XIV, engaging in romances with both Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. Original director Rouben Mamoulian was replaced by Joseph Mankiewicz, who conceived this film as a two-part, 6-hour epic. Darryl Zanuck later vetoed this, insisting on a single 4-hour, butchered picture. Highest grossing film of 1963, though still a money loser. Won 4 Oscars including Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design and Best Set Decoration; received 5 additional nominations including Best Picture, Best Score and Best Actor.
