By the Gods!

A scene from CAESAR & CLEOPATRA (1946)

This movie has some of the best matte paintings in any movie. The artist responsible for this amazing work was Percy Day. Now I don't know if Percy was responsible for all the matte paintings in the movie (they often had different artists) but there are other scenes in which I still can't figure out what's real, model work or matte painting. Pretty amazing for an old movie.
