It's barely noticeable, but in Part 1, when the Roman who had stolen grain, was brought in front of Cleopatra, she is holding the Crook and Flail. In the close up views she is holding Them correctly, with the open end of the Crook up. In the farther away views, it is held with curved end still Linking up, the opened side is pointing downward.
Divorce your wife! Marry me and name Caesarion your one true heir!
Julius Caesar: No! Caesarion is my son. Octavian is my heir.
Cleopatra actually had two brothers, Ptolemy XIII and Ptolemy XIV, both of whom she was married to. Ptolemy XIII was her first brother/husband, but with the help of Pothinus, forced Cleopatra to flee Egypt with their sister Arsinoe. Caeser, who at this point was already Cleopatra's lover, reinstated her to the throne. However, Ptolemy XIII allied himself with Arsinoe against the pair, but Roman reinforcements forced them to flee the city, and Ptolemy XIII drowned attempting to cross the Nile in 47 BC, aged around 14-15. Cleopatra was then married to her second brother/husband, Ptolemy XIV, who was co-ruler with her (though she retained the power) until shortly after the death of Caesar, when he died (possibly murdered) at the age of about 15 and was replaced with Cleopatra's 3-year-old son Caesarion (Ptolemy XV).
The DVD version is uncut and contains a little over 30 minutes of scenes not included on the VHS version.
