Film Anniversary

June 12, on this date: Cleopatra ...  starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Rex Harrison ... premiered in US (1963).

Cleopatra achieved notoriety during its production for its massive cost overruns and production troubles, which included changes in director and cast, a change of filming locale, sets that had to be constructed twice, lack of a firm shooting script, and personal scandal around co-stars Taylor and Burton.

It was the most expensive film ever made up to that point and almost bankrupted 20th Century-Fox.
