I purchased the 1978 James Michener television mini-series for my father an mother as a Christmas gift. As they both love history and all stories with the western-frontier, they loved this selection, and have already started watching it. Boasting an all star 1970s top notch classic television cast with (among many not mentioned): Richard Chamberlin (Dr Kildare), Raymond Burr (Perry Mason), and Dennis Weaver (Duel), Chad Everett (Medical Center), Sally Kellerman (M.A.S.H.), Robert Conrad (Wild Wild West), Richard Crenna (Rambo), Donald Pleasance (Halloween), Lynn Redgrave (Georgy Girl), Andy Griffith (The Andy Griffith Show), Timothy Dalton (Flash Gordon), Robert Vaughn (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), Gregory Harrison (Trapper John, M.D.), Sharon Gless (Cagney & Lacey), and David Janssen (The Fugitive) as the narrator.
Reasonably priced with hours of television and bonus features.
