Rome: Keystone, 1963. Vintage oversize borderless reference photograph from the 1963 film, showing actress Elizabeth Taylor talking with director Joseph L. Mankiewicz between takes. Stamp of Keystone Press Agency on the verso.

Based on Carlo Maria Franzero's 1957 book "The Life and Times of Cleopatra." Twentieth Century-Fox's ambitious, bank-breaking venture, the most expensive production ever made at the time, and the first film to pair Taylor with Richard Burton, beginning their tumultuous love-hate relationship.

Set in Egypt and Rome, and shot on location in Spain and Italy.

10.75 x 8.25 inches. Very Good plus.
