This version of Shakespeare's classic drama is a workmanlike production that combines the staginess of theater with the visual medium of cinema. Heston is fine in his portrayal of Marc Antony (though not up to the standards set by Marlon Brando in the 1953 version), but the remainder of the

cast is uninspired. Most simply deliver their lines without any feeling. Robards gives an unusually bad performance, one of the worst of his career. The film fluctuates between grandiose and gaudy, with lavish, sometimes poorly photographed sets. Gielgud, a veteran of the 1953 version, returned

once more, taking the title role this time. Though not a great film, box office response was enough to warrant the sequel, ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA, with Heston repeating his role.
