Overview

One of the most famous of unsold TV pilots, Alexander the Great stars William Shatner in the title role. Nine months in the making, this lavish 60-minute drama recreates the battle between the Greeks and Persians at Issus filmed near St. George, Utah. Hoping to attract as wide an audience as possible, producer Albert McCreery included an elaborate orgy sequence, with Alexander consuming mass quantities of wine as dancing girls undulate all around him. According to costar Adam West, it was this element that lost Alexander the Great several potential sponsors. The film gathered dust for four years after its production, then was given a single showing January 26, 1968, as an installment of the ABC anthology series Off to See the Wizard.

    WOW, this file was a 1...

    I can't write much, because this film is just rubbish. Inaccurate and embarrassing to watch.

    The "actor /man", that plays Megos Alexandros, is such a bad choice !! I mean casting, 'Captain Star Trek' ??

    I give this so called film, a 0.5 out of 10.0.

    The cover art, is even embarrassing.

    The History channel reenactments are just as bad, but they have no budget; and they do it to teach history through the spoken word, accompanied by a visual aid.

    This film taught me something though...and that was to never, ever watch it again.

    Pathetic,

    Dominick Front
