Julius Caesar is a independent film adaptation of William Shakespeare's play, directed by Stuart Burge from a screenplay by Robert Furnival. The film stars Charlton Heston (as Mark Antony) and Jason Robards (as Brutus, along with John Gielgud (as Julius Caesar), Richard Johnson (as Cassius), Robert Vaughn (as Casca), Richard Chamberlain (as Octavius), Diana Rigg (as Portia), Jill Bennett (as Calpurnia), Christopher Lee, Michael Gough and André Morell. It is the first film version of the play made in color. Robert Vaughn, who plays Casca, and Richard Chamberlain, who plays Octavius, are the only Americans in the film other than Robards.


The reviews for this version were mostly negative, with Robards especially being criticized for his performance as Brutus.


  • John Gielgud played Cassius in the 1953 film version of Julius Caesar, directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
  • Charlton Heston had played Mark Antony once before, in an earlier film version of Julius Caesar, made in Chicagomarker in 1950. He would do so yet again, in a 1973 film version of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra, which Heston directed.
