    Tomorrow night 5/15 the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science in LA will be showing a newly restored print of CLEOPATRA at their Samuel Goldwyn theater. Very Cool.

    Caesar (Rex Harrison) and Mark Antony (Richard Burton) with whom she has a stormy love
    affair, but Egypt is finally integrated into the Roman Empire. Directed and co-written by Joseph
