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.
