"Cleopatra" faced countless problems during its filming and production: passionate casting disputes, broken contracts, a costly re-location from London to Rome, an emergency tracheotomy for its star, Elizabeth Taylor, scandal-ridden gossip surrounding relationships on set, and a budget of $2 million that ballooned to final costs of $44 million. Legendary producer Walter Wanger recalls the drama that occurred both on and off the set, including the incredible obstacles he had to overcome and the exhilaration of producing a cinematic triumph. A revealing story about Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton's tempestuous romance and an insightful filmmaker's journal, now back in print for the 50th anniversary of "Cleopatra"'s release, "My Life with Cleopatra "shares the true story of the relationship and film that enthralled the world.
"I have been told by responsible journalists that there was more world interest in "Cleopatra," which I produced, and in its stars--Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and Rex Harrison--than in any event of 1962." --Walter Wanger
