A pre-code film that sneaked onto screens just as the censorious Hays Office began cracking down on Hollywood's racier propositions, Cleopatra is a libertine paean to decadence and depravity that can still send a viewer's mind reeling and pulse thumping – all courtesy of the Golden Age's swampiest psychosexual auteur, Cecil B. DeMille (The Ten Commandments; The Greatest Show on Earth; The King of Kings).

Claudette Colbert (It Happened One Night; The Palm Beach Story; Drums Along the Mohawk) presides over the most outrageous spectacle this side of The Scarlet Empress as the eponymous pharaoh queen who speeds from Julius Caesar (Warren William) to Marc Antony (Henry Wilcoxon), from Egypt to Rome, from war-room to bedroom… The whiff of incense permeates every scene, with each connected to the next in a veritable matrix of whips, blindfolds, and bindings – the crazed arrangement laying bare all the fetish inklings of the moving-picture dream.

Lavishly produced with some of the most inspired waxing-moon photography and unwholesome set-design to come out of the studio system, DeMille's film is an erotic tour-de-force that obliges us to re-examine the appeal of this most popular of Hollywood directors. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Cleopatra for the very first time on Blu-ray, in a Dual Format (Blu-ray + DVD) edition.

One of the Earliest Roman Epics

I love movies that take place in ancient Rome, and this is one of the earliest movies about the subject. What I like most about Cleopatra is the great acting, the very well made sets and props and the stylish cinematography. Claudette Colbert is absolutely stunning as Cleopatra! After watching this movie I almost can't imagine any other actress playing her. I also love the beautiful steelbook that the movie comes in, and the included booklet has interesting information too! One minor flaw with the movie is that even though it stretches over a period of 18 years, the viewer is never told when the scenes are taking place except the beginning of the movie which takes place in 48 BC. Other than that, this movie is a great classic that really deserves this awesome Blu-ray treatment!
