This classic Italian farce stars the luminous Sophia Loren in a dual role, playing both Cleopatra and her look-alike, Nisca. Playing Cleopatra, Loren exudes mischievousness as the seductive queen who sleeps with her bodyguard every night, then has him poisoned the following day. When, one night, Cleopatra, slips away to meet Marc Anthony, she forces a slave girl, Nisca, who looks like her to take her place.
The soldier assigned to guard Cleopatra that evening, in turn, falls in love with the woman he thinks is Cleopatra, causing no small amount of havoc in Egypt the next day when he is not killed. Famous for a skinny-dipping scene featuring the then 19 year-old Loren, TWO NIGHTS WITH CLEOPATRA is a hugely entertaining comedy.
