The 1937 version of I, Claudius, directed by Josef von Sternberg and starring Charles Laughton. Production ceased after Merle Oberon (who played Messalina) was in an auto accident, but the set had been having troubles since the inception. You can see bits and pieces of the movie in the 1965 documentary, The Epic That Never Was.

I love Charles Laughton in everything, but he would have been a terrific Claudius.
