By the Gods!

Cleopatra (Virginia Mayo) is about to poison her brother (Bart Mattson) in THE STORY OF MANKIND (1957)

Describing this movie as unusual would be an understatement. Seemingly everyone from Hollywood appeared in it, including the Marx Brothers. But their roles amount mostly to nothing more than cameos. How come Virginia looked much younger here than in THE SILVER CHALICE (1954), made a few years prior to this? Vincent Price starred and narrated. Directed by Irwin Allen! Based on an award winning children's book.
 Big crowd scenes from other movies, including LAND OF THE PHARAOHS (1955), were used.
