Starring: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Rex Harrison
Directed by: Joseph L. Mankiewicz
Synopsis: Egyptian Queen Cleopatra (Elizabeth Taylor) has a thing for Roman men; first Julius Caesar (Rex Harrison) and then Mark Antony (Richard Burton).
Kitty Cameo: Near the beginning of the film Caesar arrives in Egypt with his soldiers to be greeted by Pharaoh Ptolemy XIII (Richard O’Sullivan), who has usurped the throne and banished Cleopatra. During this scene Ptolemy is holding a somewhat fidgety long-haired white cat.
Ptolemy is a weasely leader who is mostly being led by his chief eunich Pothinus (Gregoire Aslan). As Caesar tolerates their conversation, the cat continues to look somewhat uncomfortable.
Final Mewsings: Cats don’t like to be held by weak leaders.
