MGM will be releasing the 1956 'Alexander the Great' film starring Richard
Burton on DVD in North America (Region 1) in October...just before the
Nov. 5th release of Warner Bros. Oliver Stone directed 'Alexander'
starring Colin Farrell!

Although, the film is a bit of a mess and misses getting to the truth of
Alexander's story...it does contain quite a bit of his bio and makes for
worthwhile viewing for fans of epic filmmaking. I wish Anthony Mann
would've directed it though...he made the wonderful 'Fall of the Roman
Empire' in '64.

The original cut was near 3 hours, but United Artists forced Robert Rossen to cut the film down to 2 Hrs. 17-20 mins., which leaves imporant parts out of the final cut!

Mr. Rossen was a finalist for the Director's Guild of America Award in '56 for the film!

I think it's only been on DVD in the U.K. This MGM release is the first in
the U.S. and it won't be the director's cut but rather the 137 or 141 min.
release from '56.
