Taylor’s personal and professional lives fused in lasting notoriety for this budget-busting historical epic. Incarnating the Egyptian Queen bewitching Roman rulers including Julius Caesar (Rex Harrison), Taylor set a new movie-star salary peak; fell in love with leading man Richard Burton while both were married to other people; and narrowly escaped death. The massive movie amassed Oscars for costumes, production design, visual effects, and cinematography.

A film by Joseph L. Mankiewicz
