Julius Caesar (1970) -
Producer Peter Snell
Except for the omission of several passages in the original play, this 1970 adaptation of Julius Caesar faithfully retells Shakespeare's account of events surrounding the assassination of Caesar in 44 B.C. The film begins when Caesar, John Gielgud, is at the height of his power after conquering Pompey "the Great" in a civil war. An independent film adaptation, directed by Stuart Burge from a screenplay by Robert Furnival. The film stars Charlton Heston (as Mark Antony), Jason Robards (as Brutus) and Sir John Gielgud (as Julius Caesar). It is the first film version of the play made in color. Robert Vaughn, who plays Casca, and Richard Chamberlain, who plays Octavius, are the only Americans in the film other than Robards and Heston.
