CLEOPATRA (ALEX NORTH / 2 CD) (CD)
Composed by: Alex North

Twentieth Century Fox and Varèse Sarabande Records present one of the most colossal film score restorations of all time!

Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Rex Harrison star in one of the most breathtaking epics in motion picture history – the story of the Queen of the Nile's tumultuous love affairs with Marc Antony and Julius Caesar. Directed by the great Joseph L. Mankiewicz (All About Eve), CLEOPATRA's astounding recreation of the eighteen years leading up to the formation of the Roman Empire makes for one of the most lavish productions in Hollywood history.

An Historic first ever presentation of over 150 minutes of Alex North's glorious and Academy Award-nominated film score. The composer’s own score for Spartacus and Miklós Rózsa's magnificent Ben Hur are perhaps this score’s only peers. Recorded with an orchestra of unprecedented size, it is truly one of the most extraordinary scores ever composed for a film. CLEOPATRA has never before been available on CD. An LP of recorded highlights of North's music spent some six months on the charts and was the country’s number 2 album for three weeks. Now, for the first time ever, the complete original soundtrack from the film, digitally re-mastered and sounding better than ever, is presented on this elaborately packaged double CD.

CLEOPATRA opened June 12, 1963. The film was nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award. Also receiving Oscar nominations for their work on the film were Rex Harrison (Best Actor) and Alex North (Best Score). CLEOPATRA was additionally nominated for Best Film Editing and Best Sound and took home Oscars for Cinematography, Art Direction - Set Decoration, Costume Design and Special Effects.
