Summary
This star-studded 1970 feature film production of William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar was the first full-color adaptation of the play. It tells the famous story of Caesar's assassination and the subsequent struggle between his friend and protege Marc Antony and the anti-Caesar conspirators, led by Brutus and Cassius. Charlton Heston stars as Marc Antony, as he did in a previous 1950 film. Jason Robards's understated performance as Brutus proved controversial. Other performances were widely praised, including John Gielgud as Caesar, Richard Chamberlain as Octavius, Diana Riggs as Portia, and Richard Johnson as Cassius. Directed by Stuart Burge.
