Julius Caesar is a 1970 British independent film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play, directed by Stuart Burge from a screenplay by Robert Furnival. The film stars Charlton Heston, Jason Robards and John Gielgud. It is the first film version of the play made in color.
Description: The film begins when Caesar John Gielgud is at the height of his power after conquering Pompey “the Great” in a civil war. Important senators worry that Caesar means to become king, diminish their power, and abolish their beloved Roman republic. Two senators, Cassius Richard Johnson and Brutus Jason Robards, hatch an assassination plot involving other disenchanted Roman citizens. Although a soothsayer warns Caesar of trouble (“Beware the ides of March”) and his own wife reports ominous signs (“A lioness hath whelped in the streets; and graves have yawn’d, and yielded up their dead”), Caesar decides to go to the senate on the ides (March 15). Upon arrival, the conspirators greet him with daggers. In his funeral oration, Mark Antony Charlton Heston extols Caesar and incites the citizens against Brutus and the other conspirators…..
