    A pre-code film that sneaked onto screens just as the censorious Hays Office began cracking down on Hollywood's racier propositions, Cleopatra is a libertine paean to decadence and depravity that can still send a viewer's mind reeling and pulse thumping all courtesy of the Golden Age's swampiest psychosexual auteur, Cecil B. DeMille (The Ten Commandments; The Greatest Show on Earth; The King of Kings).

    Claudette Colbert (It Happened One Night; The Palm Beach Story; Drums Along the Mohawk) presides over the most outrageous spectacle this side of The Scarlet Empress as the eponymous pharaoh queen who speeds from Julius Caesar (Warren William) to Marc Antony (Henry Wilcoxon), from Egypt to Rome, from war-room to bedroom... The whiff of incense permeates every scene, with each connected to the next in a veritable matrix of whips, blindfolds, and bindings the crazed arrangement laying bare all the fetish inklings of the moving-picture dream.

    Lavishly produced with some of the most inspired waxing-moon photography and unwholesome set-design to come out of the studio system, DeMille's film is an erotic tour-de-force that obliges us to re-examine the appeal of this most popular of Hollywood directors. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Cleopatra for the very first time on Blu-ray, in a Dual Format (Blu-ray + DVD) edition.

    SPECIAL DUAL FORMAT (BLU-RAY + DVD) EDITION FEATURES:

    Gorgeous HD transfer of the film officially licensed from Universal and presented in its original aspect ratio, in 1080p on the Blu-ray
    Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
    Original theatrical trailer
    Lavish booklet featuring the words of Cecil B. DeMille, rare archival imagery, and more!!

    For some reason I don't like it when the film title isn't on the front cover.

    I'm assuming this is the same one also available at Tesco? Cheapest I've seen yet... don't know what their packaging is like on Steelbooks mind, but it's pretty good with games from my experience (and can't be worse than some others :rolleyes:).

    If you don't want to switch it's always worth asking whoever you're with to price match, they usually do when I ask.

    But they both say blu ray steelbook and I'm willing to have the fight with Tesco if they send me an amaray. I love moaning at Tesco!

    Ah ha! I see what you mean, when I did a search (just using 'steelbook') the 15.27 version was the first one I saw and didn't think to continue looking, just pre-ordered.

    I think you're right but I'm also with Grapey on this one and will argue with Tesco when they actually find out they've made a mistake. Unless of course they have a Tesco exclusive standard version SB lol :rolleyes:
