Product Description:

Contains the original, uncut 13-part epic in a specially packaged collector's set. Follow the lives and stories of the last of the Roman emperors, as they ruthlessly weild their power through murder and debauchery. The tales are witnessed and related by Claudius, whose physical handicaps protected him from assassination by Caligula, only to become a corrupt emperor himself.

Description by Image Entertainment:

Roman history comes alive in this magnificent 13-part series. "I, Claudius" (1976, 668 min.) ranks among the most acclaimed productions in BBC history. Tracing the lives of the last of the Roman emperors, it's an epic of ruthless ambition, shocking debauchery and murderous intrigue set in one of history's most fascinating eras. Bearing witness to the saga is Claudius, whose stutter and limp have marked him a fool--yet whom prophesies have foretold will one day rule Rome. This collector's edition set includes a unique documentary feature, "The Epic That Never Was" (1965, 71 min.), a remarkable behind-the-scenes look at Alexander Korda's ill-fated 1937 screen adaptation of "I, Claudius." Starring Merle Oberon and Charles Laughton, the chronicle of this uncompleted masterpieces is an unforgettable coda to one of the greatest stories ever told.

Rating 5.0 I, Claudius Movie Lover: from MA US -- March, 20, 2009

I already own this. I watched the original on PBS and waited years for it to become available.I paid much more than this for my set. It is great, more so if you like history. Very well done and excellent acting. Watching all the sub-plots keeps it interesting.
