Product Description

Gettysburg (DVD)

Tom Berenger, Jeff Daniels, Martin Sheen and Sam Elliott head an all-star cast in this epic adaptation of Michael Shaara's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Killer Angels, a stunning account of the bloodiest battle of the United States' Civil War--Gettysburg. On July 1, 1863, two armies with distinctly different visions--one, of freedom for all; the other, of freedom for some--square off at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Three days of fierce fighting transform the quiet wheat fields of this tiny farming town into a mass graveyard for over 50,000 soldiers. Filmed on location at the actual battlefield, this monumental production captures on a grand scale the legendary battle of Gettysburg.

Additional Features

Even without the movie, the Gettysburg DVD would qualify as a valuable document for Civil War enthusiasts. The feature-length commentary is highly informative for filmmakers and historians alike, and the making-of documentary, while not strictly about the production of Gettysburg, incorporates historical insights from the film's entire primary cast. Equally noteworthy is the Oscar-nominated 1955 documentary The Battle of Gettysburg, narrated by Leslie Nielsen. Produced and written by MGM studio executive Dore Schary (just as Nielsen was about to star in Forbidden Planet for the studio), the film relates the events of history through scenic views of the Gettysburg battleground as well as the many statues and landmarks that serve as timeless reminders of Gettysburg's historical significance. Battle maps and strategic descriptions are also provided, making this DVD a concise and compelling tribute to the soldiers--North and South--who perished on those fateful days in 1863. --Jeff Shannon
