DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION
This legendary winner of 4 Academy Awards stars Elizabeth Taylor as the passionate and ambitious Egyptian queen who is determined to hold onto the throne and seduces the Roman emperor Julius Caesar (Rex Harrison). When Caesar is murdered, she redirects her attention to Marc Anthony (Richard Burton) who vows to take power. However Caesar's successor (Roddy McDowall) has other plans. NOTE: This presentation is the 2013 restored version of the initial premiere film. Shortly after the premiere Fox had an hour cut (over the objections of Mankiewicz) from the movie hours to allow theaters to increase the number of showings per day which left certain details out of the film. As a result in 1963 and since then, nearly all of the public only viewed the shorter version.
