Synopsis / Plot
The grandeur of the Roman world and powerful jealousy thunder together in Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s adaptation of William Shakespeare’s famous JULIUS CAESAR. Scheming Cassius (John Gielgud), envious of the honors and love conferred upon Caesar by the Roman people, convinces Brutus (James Mason) and other senators that Caesar must be slain before he accepts the ultimate honor of king. But loyal Marc Antony (Marlon Brando), calling forth "Friends, Romans, countrymen," exhorts the Roman people to his cause of vindicating Caesar and driving the bloody senators from the city, transforming them from hunters into the hunted in this tense, riveting portrayal of the classic tragedy.
