Five epic blockbusters in the one set – Barabbas, Major Dundee, Waterloo, Julius Caesar, The Duellists.
Spared crucifixion when the Jews chose Jesus of Nazareth in his place, murderer/thief Barabbas spends his haunted days as a criminal, a prisoner, a gladiator – a man searching for faith who must confront his inner demons to win his freedom.
MAJOR DUNDEE – THE EXTENDED VERSION
The electrifying depiction of an oppressive union officer who leads a squad of rebel prisoners, ex-slaves, and criminals into Mexico to hunt down a band of murdering apaches which raises the question: who reprents a greater threat?
Napoleon’s abduction and his exile to Elba: his dramatic escape, his reunion with his devoted troops and their generals. His last, desperate bid for ultimate power and glory, so narrowly defeated on the bloody fields of Waterloo. A film on an epic scale – with a cast to match. Rod Steiger, Christopher Plummer, Orson Welles and Jack Hawkins all contribute fine portraits of great men against a magnificent backdrop of battle and bloodshed.
The powerful, heroic and flawed Emperor Caesar is warned to “beware the Ides of March,” and with these words the legendary betrayal by the roman senate begins in the epic saga about the controversial leader and his turbulent times.
Keith Carradine and Harvey Keitel play officers in Napoleon’s army, d’Hubert and Feraud, who spend their off-hours challenging each other to bloody duels. This goes on for nearly 16 years, with neither man showing any inclination of calling a truce. The final clash finds the gentlemanly d’Hubert getting the upper hand of the obsessed Feraud – but that’s not quite the end of the story.
