Highlight Reel | Julius Caesar | Great Performances on PBS


(fence rattling) – [Officer] Places ladies. – Rome must stand under
one man’s sway, what Rome! Speak, strike, redress. Am I entreated then, to speak and strike? – Cowards die many times
before their deaths. The valiant never taste of death but once. Of all the wonders that I yet have heard it seems to me most strange
that men should fear. Seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come. – Caesar! – See where Antony, who
rebels long o’ night is not withstanding up! Good morrow Antony! – Oh! So too most noble Caesar. (haunting chime) (heavy panting) – Et tu Brute? (gasp) (muffled screams) – If then that friend demand
why Brutus rose against Caesar this is my answer, not
that I loved Caesar less but that I loved Rome more! Had you rather Caesar were
living to die all slaves? Than that Caesar were dead
and live all free men! As Caesar loved me, I weep for him. As he was fortunate I rejoice at it. As he was valent I honor him but as he was ambitious I slew him. (group shouting) – Truce, Romans, countrymen
lend me your ears! I come to bury Caesar not to praise him. The evil that men do lives after them. The good is oft interred with their bones so let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutus has told
you Caesar was ambitious if it were so it was a grievous fault and grievously hath Caesar answered it. Here, on the leave of Brutus and the rest, for Brutus is an honorable man so are they all, all honorable men. Come I to speak in Caesar’s funeral. (chiming music)
