Ancient Egypt Movies
was never a strong fad in movie-making like sword-and-sandal, westerns,
or superheroes, Ancient Egypt has popped up a lot in films since the
early days of cinema. Unlike the very distinct genres of films,
Ancient Egypt has NOT been overdone in movies and, therefore, has had a
much longer fascination with audiences. Movies dealing with
Ancient Egypt, ficion or non, will undoubtedly always interest us.

"Son of Cleopatra" (1964)
Son of Cleopatra (1964)- An
Egyptian Robin Hood! Mark Damon plays El Kabir, a bandit leader
who fights against the oppression of the Roman ruler in Alexandria,
Egypt. El Kabir discovers he is the son of Cleopatra and Julius
Caesar. A cool little concept, well-acted and filmed, but
overdone. The movie drags in places. They were going for an
epic here, but the story just didn't call for it. Other than
that, this is a pretty good old movie.
This is an Italian/Egyptian cross-production.
It's actual title, in Italian is "Il figlio di Cleopatra".
