Moses the Lawgiver: The Complete Series
Hollywood legend Burt Lancaster (Elmer Gantry, Birdman of Alcatraz) stars in the first-ever large-scale Biblical series especially made for television – Moses The Lawgiver.
First broadcast in 1975 and filmed largely on or near the actual terrain where, some 33 centuries ago Moses led the Children of Israel to the Promised Land, this lavish drama was produced by Vincenzo Labella (the Emmy-nominated producer of Jesus of Nazareth) and directed by the award-winning Gianfranco De Bosio (Tosca, Carmen).
Featuring a screenplay by Anthony Burgess (Clockwork Orange) and the Oscar-nominated Vittorio Bonicelli (The Garden of the Finzi-Continis), starring Lancaster as Moses, and featuring a supporting cast including Anthony Quayle (The Tamarind Seed, Ice Cold in Alex) Ingrid Thulin (Puccini), and Irene Papas (The Guns of Navarone) Moses The Lawgiver is a compelling drama about the Israelites struggle to the Promised Land. Special features are:
• Burt Lancaster on Russell Harty from 1974

MOSES THE LAWGIVER will appeal to all fans of Biblical epics and set the benchmark for large-scale historical dramas.
