Mankiewicz Barbs At “Cleopatra” Opening

In recognition of the just-announced May 21 screening of a super-lustrous, digitally restored version of Joseph L. Mankiewicz‘s “Cleopatra” (1963) under the Cannes Classics program at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, here is perhaps the greatest red-carpet interview of all time. It’s the epic’s director, Joe Mankiewicz, vs. questioner Bert Parks. The sardonic humor is amusing, but you’d expect no less from the writer/director of “All About Eve.”
