Cleopatra. 1934. Cecil B. DeMille. Claudette Colbert

     Directed by Cecil B. DeMille, Cleopatra (1934) was an epic in it's time was nominated for five Academy Awards. Set in Ancient Egypt, the film stars Claudette Colbert as Queen Cleopatra and centers on her love affairs and manipulation of both Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. Claudette Colbert is stunning in her role and the wardrobe department did a wonderful job creating 20th Century designs of ancient fashion, albeit historically inaccurate. A great production all around.
