Theda’s CLEOPATRA #1
“From the first instant I saw you, entering Rome on that monstrous stone beast, shining in the sun like a little gold toy how I envied Caesar. Went suddenly sick with it. Not his conquests or his triumphs. Not his titles of the mob. I envied him you.”
Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra (1963)
