Re: "CLEOPATRA" ELIZABETH TAYLOR, R. BURTON MONDAY 8:00 EASTERN TCM

I could never sit through this film - not even the first time.

The most interesting thing about this film is the affair between Burton and Liz.  

The film is B-O-R-I-N-G!

I enjoyed this movie, the settings are spectacular and it is one of those so called cast of thousands movies!  Elizabeth Taylor was a beautiful woman, there aren't too many in that category in my opinion.  there are pretty, cute and attractive actresses and then there are the beauties like Taylor.

 

Richard Burton, in my opinion was a good locking man and I could see the attraction of Taylor and Burton  to each other.  In Cleopatra they had that chemistry.

I haven't seen this movie in years but tuned in for the first two hours.

 

I am a huge Rex Harrison fan and think he did a great job. I would have preferred Stephen Boyd to Richard Burton.....he is somewhat dull to me.

 

Overall, I didn't find the movie exciting as I used to. Too tedious.

My mother loved this movie. Elizabeth Taylor was so beautiful. Thanks for the post @oznell. I hadn't thought about this movie in a very long time.
