Yes. 1934's "Cleopatra" was an outrageously gaudy and extravagant "Cecil B. DeMille" production.

But, all the same - It still managed to be a fairly entertaining slice of pseudo-history (in a cheesy sort of way).

In "Cleopatra" actress, Claudette Colbert (wearing a specially-designed wonder bra) vamped it up, big-time, as the "Queen of the Nile".

But, with that in mind - One does find themselves wondering how such a petty and trivial-minded woman as Cleopatra could have ever reigned supreme as Egypt's powerful and adored ruler.
