What are the differences between Julius Caesar the movie and the book?
The movie from 1953 is missing some scenes and parts from acts such as when Portia stabs herself in the thigh to prove to Brutus that she is strong enough to keep his secrets. Another scene that was changed is when Caesar was being killed. All the conspirators ended up cutting one another along with killing Caesar but in the movie only Caesar was stabed

Yes, Caesar wroteabout his battles in his conquest Gaul and the peoples who livedthere in his Commentarii de Bello Gallico (Commentaries on theGallic War).
Julius Caesar is a play about political power and how it may be befittingly and unjustifiably wielded.
I'm sure there were some cuts in the text. Heston himself discusses the making of the film in his autobiography, The Actor's Life (1978). It's not a bad film (except for a sur…prisingly weak performance by Jason Robards), and it's fairly close to the play, but I think the 1953 version, directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, is much better. Good luck..
he is the role of caesar. he plays a role that is look up to by everyone in rome that is why brutus and the conspittors killed him because he didn't want rome to be a monarcy…
Great Caesar"s Ghost! How can you make such an accusation? Julius Caesar is one of the classic historical tragedies of Shakespeare and is widely taught in High schools as it f…requently harmonizes with Ancient History. I can understand some discretionary modes on Macbeth, with its murder theme- not in the context of 30 BC Roman politics! and occult vibes, but certainly not Caesar.
What are different thing between Julius Caesar and Augustus
Yes,its an amazing book and everyone should read it!!!!
To find out, check out Shakespeare's play Antony and Cleopatra which shows more clearly the basis and outcome of this conflict.
They are two different people, but Julius and Augustus were both on the same political wavelength. The main difference between the two was that Julius grew arrogant and August…us was a smart enough politician to appear humble and just another citizen, at least in public. Another difference was that Augustus shared power mainly with Marcus Agrippa, whereas Julius delegated very little real power.
It is not known. It is known that he liked Menader, the Gerek dramatist, because he quoted him
nothing they are both idiots
In Roman Empire
Julius Caesar was a Senator in the Roman Republic (before it became the Roman Empire). Alexander the great was a Macedonian leader whose father, Philip, took over Greece. As k…ing, Alexander crushed the Persian Empire.
In Roman Empire
Julius Caesar and Mark Antony were both from the patrician classand related to each other. Caesar however ruled by conquering andAntony ruled by military treaty and pacts. Alt…hough both weregifted military men and public speakers, Caesar overshadowed Antonyin virtually every aspect. Another difference which made itself known better after Caesar'sdeath, was Antony's bias towards the Hellenistic areas of the Romanempire. Yes, Caesar was a lover of Cleopatra, however, that did notmean he favored Hellenism.
Caesar has a month, the words Kaiser and Tsar, asurgical birth and a salad named for him. Obama has ObamaCare, theObama Phone and the Obamanation named after him. Shakespeare …wroteJulius Caesar about the Roman leader and Othello about Obama withCassio representing Biden. However the main difference is BarackObama served two years in the Senate while Julius Caesar wasassassinated on the steps of the Senate. For this reason BarackObama has avoided the Senate since being elected President and willonly take the elevator on the rare occasions he does visit..
There were no movies when any of the Roman Caesars lived.
Sulla attempted to stabilise Roman government to end civil war - heextended the Dictatorship for two years, and imagining things werefixed, retired. The troubles of the civil …war returned as generals fought fordominance again, so Caesar made himself Dictator for Life to keeppermanent control of them. They solved the lifelong problem by andobviously easy action - terminated the life-dictator's life. Augustus did not set himself up as a target, ruling throughindirect means - taking the power of a tribune of the plebs whichgave him veto powers over the senate; he took the powers of aproconsul which gave him consular powers outside the city; and gavethe settled provinces to the senate while taking the borderprovinces himself, and that was where the army was located. And hecalled himself Princeps (First Citizen) to avoid any suggestion ofkingship or dictatorship which had brought Caesar down (Emperor isa much later title - for 200 years they were Princeps. His titleAugustus was also a deliberately vague one - 'great man' - to avoidthe knives).
