While the Elizabeth Taylor version of Cleopatra was still in production, all sorts of quickie productions and previously produced European epics concerning the Queen of Egypt began burrowing out of the woodwork. The Italian Queen for Caesar (Una Regina per Cesare) is listed as a 1962 release, though chances are it was lensed a few years earlier. Pascale Petit stars as Cleo, with sword-and-sandal veteran Gordon Scott as one of her paramours. The film covers the years between Cleopatra's ascendancy to the throne to her dalliance with Roman emperor Julius Caesar. Cleo's subsequent romance with Marc Antony is only hinted at in the film's last reels.
