Speaking of Caesar being murdered by Roman senators, Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s 1953 classic Julius Caesar is an iconic adaptation of Shakespeare’s play of the same name. It stars Louis Calhern as Julius Caesar and Marlon Brando in an iconic performance as Mark Antony, the real gem of which is his iconic delivery of Antony’s “friends, Romans, countrymen” speech. James Mason plays Brutus and John Gielgud plays Caius Cassius. You can watch Julius Caesar for free from MGM on the Internet Archive or you can rent it on Amazon Prime Video. Beware the ides of March!
