Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Ida Carloni Talli, Matilde Di Marzio, Ruffo Geri, Elsa Lenard,

Amleto Novelli, Gianna Terribli-Gonzales

Directed by Enrico Guazzoni



Print: black/white

Runtime: 110 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



First filmed in France in 1903, William Shakespeare's Antony and

Cleopatra was given a lavish screen treatment in this 1913 Italian

adaptation. Though the name of the actress who played Cleopatra is not

known, Antonio Novelli was prominently billed as Marc Antony. The actors

perform operatically, their every gesture geared to the last row in the

balcony. Even in her death throes, Cleopatra manages to perform a brief

dance for the benefit of the "tired businessmen" in the audience. While

the acting is hard to take seriously, the film itself is an impressive

achievement, filled with spectacular crowd scenes and battle highlights

(according to publicity, 7,500 "supernumeries" appeared in the picture).

Running eight reels -- approximately 110 minutes when projected at silent

speed -- Antony and Cleopatra was released in the U.S. by George Kleine.
