Product Description

Cecil B. DeMille’s Cleopatra, one of the most spectacular motion pictures ever to hit the silver screen, is now available in a new 75th Anniversary Edition DVD. Nominated for 5 Academy Awards including Best Picture, the historical epic stars Claudette Colbert as the cunning Queen of the Nile who, wielding her beauty like a weapon, lures Roman leaders Julius Caesar (Warren William) and Marc Antony (Henry Wilcoxon) into her web of royal deception and betrayal. Featuring a digitally remastered picture and all-new bonus features, Cleopatra 75th Anniversary Edition is a stunning tribute to one of the most breathtaking motion pictures ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great version of a sensational story April 18 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Firstly I must say that even though the approach they take is very different I really love and appreciate BOTH versions of "Cleopatra". It seems to be inevitable that the two are endlessly compared as to their general worth but in reality they are very different while essentially telling the same story.
I found Claudette Colbert to be an excellent Cleopatra and while she is most famous for portraying sophisticated modern women in "Cleopatra" and her other epic production from that time, "The Sign of the Cross" she captures beautifully the feel of that far off time in history. Claudette was an extremely capable actress equally adept at performing in comedy, drama and spectacle. Here she has a role of a lifetime and it is one of the roles she is justly remembered most for.
Contrary to what a lot of reviewers always state I find Cecil B DeMille's work wonderful to watch. I guess being a history buff I just love the times most of his productions are set in.I think that a great deal of thought and care has gone into all his productions...no more obvious than in his 1934 version of "Cleopatra"
The film positvely glows with one exotic scene after another. Cleopatra's seduction of Marc Antony on her barge has to be seen to be believed!! Surely the queen's real barge was never so lavish!! Her entry into Rome as part of Ceasar's entourage while well done can't possibly compare to the incredibly lavish entry scene in Elizabeth Taylor's version unfortunately.
As a history exercise it stays close to what real history says happened but never once does the entertainment let up. The settings , costumnes, music used are pure DeMille and are thus a sight for the eye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality never is old July 8 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When this movie first came out Claudette Colbert was one of the bigest names in pictures .
She could act and looked realy hot wile doing it.
This movie has her at her best in some very gaudy costumes and lavish sets being a
Cecil B DeMille epic this is to be expected. He went all out all the time.
I had seen bits of this movie on clasic movie documentries in the past. I have enjoyed watching it over and over on the DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars for lovers of old hollywood Feb. 4 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
no one could make entertaining junk like cecil b. demille. this movie sure is junk and it sure is entertaining. claudette colbert in slinky costumes alone makes it worthwhile. she more than makes up for the turgid presence of Henry Wilcoxson (who by the way was very good in caddy shack 50 years later as a minister who loses his religion after being struck by lightning). the scene where cleopatra seduces mark anthony on her royal barge is a real keeper. for lovers of oldtime hollywood schlock, this is hard to beat. except for sign of the cross, which also stars the wonderful colbert, who had the best legs in hollywood history.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Cleopatra! July 27 2000
By CozyKat
Format:VHS Tape
I love this movie, own the video, and have watched it many times. It absolutely beats the Taylor/Burton version in all departments. Colbert is a perfect balance of seductive humor and ambition as the Egyptian Queen and Wilcoxen is a remarkably....well...VIGOROUS Marc Antony (this is a good thing!) The costumes and sets are as opulent and fantastic as you would expect from DeMille, especially the scene on Cleopatra's barge. This is a great movie, not to be missed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for it's time. June 14 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The movie looks really great and is generally well acted. Cleopatra is as strong as ever. The DVD itself has some interesting extras. The commentary and featuretes are nice. My main complaint is that the movie is incredibly rushed. I don't expect any movie to tell everything about this story, but they could've taken a bit more time with it. Also I found it odd that the person playing Octavian seems to be older than Marc Anthony even though he was considerably younger. Overall though its well done for its time and an interesting take on the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anything speical in the anniversary edition? July 15 2009
Format:DVD
I have loved this film for years. Claudette Colbert is excellent in her interpretation of Cleopatra. Owning the box set of DeMille films including Cleopatra, I was wondering if the anniversary edition has anything extra.
Ciao

5.0 out of 5 stars Required watching was a thrill... April 6 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I originally had to watch this for a University class, but after seeing it I couldn't stop raving about it! In a class studying your average 'sword&sandal' Roman spectacle, this movie had the class and lavish sets and costumes of Old Hollywood combined with a fresh humour that seems never to have tarnished. Claudette Colbert, I must admit, I'd never heard of before, but she was stunning in the title role. It was obvious that she had fun with it, and there isn't anything I like better to see! Definitely recommended for a good popcorn and couch night!
