Kleine made a fortune in the early days of cinema by shrewdly purchasing the rights to other spectacular movies, including "The Last Days Of Pompeii," "Julius Caeser," "The Lion Of Venice," "Othello," "Antony And Cleopatra," "Vanity Fair" and "Quo Vadis?" He knew that audiences wanted to bewowed and his films never failed to deliver.
