As a primer for The Eagle, an award-winning historian gives us list of top ten ancient films.
Carry on Cleo
It is worth sitting through hours and hours of turgid post-war sword-and-sandal epics just to have one’s pleasure in seeing Sid James as Mark Antony so much enhanced. By miles the best of the Carry On films, it runs for 92 minutes where Cleopatra is over four hours long: an imbalance that says everything about the respective entertainment value of the two films. It is famous, of course, for what is probably, after Shakespeare’s ‘Et tu Brute?’, the best known line of dialogue ever attributed to Julius Caesar: “Infamy! Infamy! They’ve all got it in for me!”
