5.0 out of 5 stars Burt Lancaster as Moses? YES! 15 Jun 2013
By DLAllen - Published on Amazon.com

I first saw this entire mini-series in Italy (where it was produced). I think I may have seen some episodes on CBS a year later. I have had the edited feature-length version for 20 years or so---but this is the complete opus filmed in English (words match the lips of the actors). Much of the detail and continuity were missing from the shortened version. This was more realistic and fulfilling. The production values are very adequate for a cast of 200 or so and it is a television production without a $100M budget, but every episode of the biblical story is authentically portrayed (with artistic/realistic license) and ultimately a comforting spiritual experience. This edition is from Mexican Television I believe, but the soundtrack is the original English language track. The musical score is very beautiful and reflects more authentically ethnic sounds from that part of the world. The score is by Ennio Marricone of "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" fame. Location shots, as in most cases of these types of programs, was in Morocco and Tanzania. The price is extraordinary considering the length and content of this DVD set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thiis IS the English-Language Miniseries, US-Compatible, Only in Spanish Packaging 3 Mar 2012
By Tunco Malclovio - Published on Amazon.com

Though the 141 minute US edited version arrived first, to my delight in this case, since such actors as Burt Lancaster and Anthony Quayle had marvelous voices, this is NOT dubbed into Spanish (though I can get by in that language as well) but the original 300 minute miniseries in English and compatible with both regions 1 and 4, meaning you don't need to get any PAL system to play this puppy. Though the picture is limited to the tight, cube TV picture for which the miniseries was produced originally, the picture quality is really very excellent -- lovely. Thugh for those of us very familiar with the story of Moses as given in the Bible, we will recognize some liberties taken with the story though overall much of the essence is still there and very enjoyable if one is willing to give some allowances for the fact that this is a secular production and not made by those for whom every aspect of the story is literally sacred. Lancaster is truly magnificent and at the top of his artistic powers in tis production. Quayle ia marvelous as well andperhaps not one whit behind Lancaster in his role. The cast is quite excellent in general and the production value really quite exquisite. Though, if it was ever even filmed tis way, a letterbox version comes to mind, this was certainly intended for the small screen and such a reversal would likly destroy the director's composition of shots just as a widescreen production placed in pan-and-scan does mischief to a widescreen composition. I believe we must recognize this and forget all dreams of a widescreen version which probably never existed or at least for which format it was likely not composed.
5.0 out of 5 stars 3 Cheers for the Mexicans and 5 Stars for the Product ! 16 April 2014

Based on other comments, I'm not alone in having hoped for years to be able to get a "full" version of this TV miniseries. Though seemingly this "extended" version is still not a full version, it's FAR better than the 140 minute bare bones version released for America. I'm just happy to get this 300 minute version, so am giving it five stars. However, after ordering it, I found that the full 360 minute version is available, but only for other (British?) regions.....BUT that there is supposedly a way to de-code your player to accept any region's DVDs. Can not seem to get a 100% confirmation of this, however, and so am not willing to mess with my player until I do so. I am thankful to the Mexicans who made this DVD to play in both their and our region. I had also expected (based on some review/comment) to have to watch the movie with Spanish subtitles, but they are coded rather than imprinted and all you have to do is use your subtitle button on the remote and turn them off ! The picture quality is obviously not HD, and didn't expect it to be. It's like watching the original broadcast on analog tv.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Film, Just Had an Issue with the Spanish ONLY Cover Available? 22 Mar 2014

Great feature film but I hope you can read Spanish or good luck with controlling the DVD features on your DVD player, lol. The quality of the product and the case is perfectly fine, it's just the Spanish language I had issue with since I don't speak the language. I had to get my Hispanic neighbor to come over and show me how to operate the DVD at first, then all was well from that point on, lol. Great flick, really!
