Cleopatra probably is the first sex symbol in the world. The famous queen of old Egypt was admired by many Romans, but after Julius Caesar finally rejected a relationship with her she committed suicide. More than 20 movies were dedicated to her story and the most famous one is the 1963 picture with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, one of the most expensive movies from that time. The music was written by Alex North for 20th Century Fox. Many albums of that score were made in the 1960’s and beyond.
