     Directed by Mario Mattioli, Two Nights with Cleopatra (1954) was aimed at showcasing the radiant beauty and star power of Sophia Loren. The comedy focuses on Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, who sneaks out to visit Mark Antony while leaving a decoy in her place at the palace. Sophia Loren is wonderful in dual roles as Cleopatra and as the slave girl tasked with impersonating her. Alberto Sordi provides comedic elements as the guard who falls in love with Cleopatra's decoy.
