Helen Gardner’s Cleopatra (1912), the first film produced by her own Helen Gardner Picture Players, will screen on TCM on Sunday, September 29 at 12:45am.
Filmed in Tappan-on-the-Hudson in New York, Cleopatra was described by Moving Picture World, according to the AFI catalogue, as “Six thousand feet of sumptuous beauty and exquisite art—absolutely a motion picture in a class to itself—a perfect story. One hour and forty minutes of thrilling, dramatic interest—a story of the most remarkable woman in all human history.”
