49. Cleopatra (1963)

I was not surprised to learn (after watching this film) that the director planned to make this two films, but the producers decided against it, because they wanted to profit from the Taylor-Burton-relationship. It still feels a bit like two films. I found the first part better and Harrison's Caesar (and his scenes with Taylor) a lot more interesting.
Of course the sets are more than impressive (the studio might nearly have gone bankrupt because of them, but they are great to look at) and there are some great lines of dialogue, that probably would have fitted better on a theater stage, but still work very well here.
