William Shakespeare's classic historical drama tells the rise and fall of the first Roman Emperor Julius Caesar. John Gielgud magnificently plays the arrogant and ill-fated ruler who is killed after his power threatens the Roman senate. Charlton Heston plays Mark Antony with verve, but Jason Robards portrayal of Brutus is decidedly uninspired. Robert Vaughn, Richard Chamberlain, Diana Rigg and Christopher Lee also appear. Gielgud played the role of Cassius in the 1953 version.
