Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton star in this Academy Award-winning, epic retelling of the life and loves of the Egyptian queen. Desperate to hold onto her throne in the face of Roman expansion, Cleopatra (Taylor) employs all her charms in an attempt to secure an alliance with Julius Caesar (Rex Harrison). When Caesar is subsequently murdered, however, a vulnerable Cleopatra quickly turns her affections to popular Roman general Mark Antony (Burton). But although the relationship initially fares well, it's not long before the once proud general, now emasculated by the queen's charms, is reduced to a shadow of his former self that presages the doomed lovers' ultimate fate.
Vincent Sherman directs this 1940s drama starring Richard Todd, Ronald Reagan and Patricia Neal. The film is set in Burma following the end of the war in 1945. Life is tough for a group of soldiers with injuries too severe to travel back home to enjoy the victory celebrations with their friends and comrades. Under the care of Sister Margaret Parker (Neal), the multinational soldiers who go by the nicknames Yank (Reagan), Kiwi (Ralph Michael), Tommy (Howard Marion Crawford) and Digger (John Sherman) are recuperating in a Burmese hospital. Recalcitrant Scotsman Corporal Lachlan (Todd) joins them in a particularly tragic position: he has only weeks to live due to a kidney problem. The others try to cheer him up, but struggle to penetrate his steely facade. Will Lachlan makes some friends at last or will he die alone and bitter?
