By the Gods!

Sophia Loren and Alberto Sordi in TWO NIGHTS WITH CLEOPATRA

Not a slap on your knee hilarious comedy but fun enough to watch. Loren plays a dual role (Cleopatra and a common girl who looks Cleopatra). She was very young. It's one of her first films. Sordid plays up the hapless nerd who's caught in between the two bodacious women. I've lost count on how many times I've watched this.

A fun flick, which is notable today primarily for Sophia's nude swimming pool scene. This scene is all over the Internet. Admittedly the humor is pretty unsophisticated and mediocre.

Paul Muller is excellent in a significant supporting role as Tortul.

Unfortunately the only version of this Peplum on DVD is of poor visual quality (muddy and faded colors), and is dubbed rather than subtitled.
