My review of the RSC Julius Caesar mentions the English comedian’s love of the Roman plays, and that Antony & Cleopatra was particularly popular for spoofs. This was fuelled by the two mega Hollywood Cleopatra films , with Claudette Colbert in 1934, directed by Cecil de Mille, then The Burton-Taylor epic in 1963. The Burton-Taylor was never so much a bad film, it’s not at all, so much as a grossly overspent film. The story of passion, desertion, distrust, getting back together reflected their reality so well, which is why the epic’s basic plot was well-known in the sixties. So well-known, that in the 60s, Cleopatra’s final speech was one of the most popular audition speeches for would-be drama students too. So one always has to put aside the image of Ernie Wise falling over, in a short tunic and a helmet too big for him with Glenda Jackson as Cleopatra on their 1971 Christmas Special; or Sid James as Mark Antony, and Kenneth Williams as Julius Caesar in Carry On Cleo.
