    748 Words  | 3 Pages

    Anthony makes to be within the people and it gives a sense of himself lowering his high status to be one with the people and being a regular Roman instead of someone with influence. Secondly, just the way Brando talked I felt was much more human than Charlton Heston who was Mark Anthony in the 1970 version and Keith Mitchell who played Mark Anthony in the BBC version.
