One of the rare early historical dramas imported by George Kleine starring Antonio Novelli.
Based loosely on Shakespeare's play, Plutarch's "Life of Antony", and Pietro Cossa's dramatic poem, "Cleopatra", this movie was spectacular for its time. It offers location shots made in Italy and Egypt, large crowd scenes and lots of emotional drama. The epic love story with impressive sets and crowd scenes.

One of the earliest of the Italian epics available.
This DVD was from an analog transfer done over 20 years ago and the focus is not as sharp as digital transfers. There is also a slight WOW in the sound track sometimes.
