Claudette Colbert was sick from April 10, 1934 to April 16, delaying the production.
When Cecil B. DeMille was in pre-production on this film, he asked to screen the original version, Cleopatra with Theda Bara. No prints could be found on in Los Angeles, so a copy of it was borrowed from the Fox office in New York. After DeMille viewed the film it was sent back to Little Ferry, New Jersey. On July 9, 1937, a fire at the storage facility destroyed almost all of Fox's known archived prints, most likely including Cleopatra.
