Product Description:

Hit stage musical given the movie treatment. A skinny old gentleman with wispy white hair dreams the impossible dream. He is Don Quixote de La Mancha, the knight errant. Based on Cervantes' work finished in 1615. Academy Award Nominations: Best Song Score.

Plot Synopsis:

An entertaining, big-screen version of the popular musical "Man of La Mancha."
Miguel de Cervantes, the writer of "Don Quixote," is arrested and thrown into a dungeon during the Spanish Inquisition. When he's put on trial, the author tells the story of Quixote, fantasizing himself in the role of his famous idealistic hero.
Through flashbacks, the film shows the would-be-knight's quest for "The Impossible Dream," accompanied by his faithful sidekick Sancho Panza.
