ST. PAUL, Minn. — It boasted the biggest budget Hollywood had seen as of 1963. It had lavish sets, it paid the first million dollar salary to its leading lady and it set records for her 65 costume changes.

Alex North provided the score, and we hear the love theme of Anthony and Cleopatra tonight on Flicks in Five.
