Biography of the great Roman

general CAIUS JULIUS CAESAR

Produced by the Cines Film co.,

Rome. Film from sale and rental

office Jean Desmet, Amsterdam.

Lead roles in the first part:

For the young Caius Julius,

more pleasant than the

boisterous gaiety...

...is the company of the

amiable Servilia, who belongs

to the mighty family of Cato.

With the carelessness of youth,

they devote themselves

entirely to enjoyment...

...and to the pleasure of love.

A FEW MONTHS LATER

The strict discipline which rules

the family of Servilia...

...makes that Caius Julius can

only meet his beloved in secret.

Servilia visits with Cajus the

temple dedicated to the goddess

Iuno, the patron of fidelity.

Before the goddess' altar they

take the vow of eternal loyalty,

...and their secret marriage

is consecrated by a priest.

But Lutatius, the Cato family's head,

to which Servilia belongs too, has

promised her as wife to Marcus Brutus.

Cajus Julius is spied while leaving

his pretty Servilia's house. The

secret visits are told to Lutatius.

Lutatius, having learned of the

affair between Cajus and Servilia,

therefore wants to hurry the marriage

between Servilia and Marcus Brutus.

"You will marry Marcus Brutus!

Refuse, and the mighty dictator

Sulla, who is on our side,

...will certainly bring about

that Cajus Julius is executed."

"Stop!... I consent!..."

The last meeting. On the notice,

that he will have to part forever

from the by him so dearly beloved,

Cajus Julius wants to end his life.

"If not for me, then do it

for our child!" - "Yes! For

our child I will stay alive."

"Farewell, Servilia!

I swear, that I will keep

our secret in the grave.

Even our child will never

learn who was his father."

Servilia marries Marcus Brutus.

At the wedding feast she hides her

heart pain behind a proud smile.

The confession.

"I am already mother! Kill me,

if you will, it is in your right.

Our line knows how to die!"

"No! You will live on in shame!

That will be your punishment!

I will manage to save my honour."

To avoid possible suspicion from

Marcus Brutus, Cajus Julius has

married the noble Cornelia.

But neither marital bliss nor his

daughter Julia's birth can make

him forget all of his heart pain.

The Roman people await

the tyrant, Sulla.

"Be careful, Cajus Julius, for you

almost surpass the dictator Sulla.

It might sadly cost you your life."

"You here, Cajus Julius? Don't

you know that your presence

is most unpleasant to me?"

"But dictator, am I

not a Roman citizen?"

"Remember, Cajus Julius, that

contradiction and opposing

my will means death."

"Cajus Julius, the mediation

of the above all holy Vestal

Virgins has saved your life."

Despite the Vestal Virgins'

protection, Cornelia, wife of

Cajus Julius, fears...

the revenge of the dictator,

and she begs her husband to

flee before it is too late.

Cajus Julius to Servilia: "I leave

Rome, but do not flee. Now Sulla is

more powerful for our son shall live."

During the seven years of Cajus

Julius' voluntary exile in Asia,

the young Brutus, son of Cajus and

Servilia, receives the first lessons

from a member of the Catonian family

and the idea is impressed upon the

lad that Rome must stay a republic.

Slowly the young Brutus is

instilled with hate...

...against his unknown father

Cajus Julius, who is not a

follower of the republican party.

His mother Servilia attempts to

temper with soft words the hate

of Brutus for Cajus Julius.

By her promise to Cajus she is forced

to keep the secret and so she cannot

tell her son that he is is father.

The death of the dictator Sulla

(in the year 78 BC) brings an end

to the reigh of terror and joy to a

large part of the Roman population.

The news of the death of the dictator

has made Cajus Julius decide to return

to Rome after an absence of 7 years.

But Cajus Julius has nevertheless made

himself formidably heard of in his

city of birth during his stay in Asia.

His plans have taken solid form.

Rome trembles...Rome hopes for him.

Cajus Julius manages to win

the people over completely

with his generosity.

Visit of Tertullia, wife

of the rich and powerful

Crassus, to Cajus Julius.

Cajus Julius, you will be amazed

to find Tertullia visiting you,

...but for a long time I observe your

pursuits and your works with interest.

At the house of Tertullia,

the wife of Crassus,

...the friends and followers

of Cajus Julius meet to prepare

his election as consul.

At the senate session, noisy

debates take place...

...between the followers of

Cato's republican party and

the admirers of Cajus Julius.

"Cajus Julius, do you dare to

oppose the will of the senate?

Don't you fear to be called

an enemy of the republic?

If you are an honest man,

then show me the statement

that was just received by you."

"Here... read! and you will

see who Cajus Julius is."

Cicero to Cajus Julius. I have

already won many to our party, but

beware of the implaccable nature

...of Cato and his party. May

the gods save us from a second

tyrant like Sulla once was.

Tertullia, who admires Cajus Julius,

has him meet in her house Pompey,

also a powerful and influental man.

Cajus Julius wins Pompey too

for his grand plans, namely

his election as consul,

and supreme command of the Roman

legions. Now start the glorious

campaigns of Cajus Julius.
