Alexander conquered most of the then known world and created a Greek empire that spanned all the way from the Balkans to India.
Plot: He was a fierce military commander who led huge armies into battle without a single defeat; a magnificent warrior who many believed was part god – this was Alexander the Great (Richard Burton), the legendary Greek hero hailed by his countrymen as “The King of Kings”. Born in 356 B.C. into a turbulent world of political unrest, educated by Aristotle (Barry Jones) and chosen to lead his people in the grand tradition of his powerful father (Fredric March), this glamorous world conqueror rose above all conflict to unite the continents of Europe and Asia to become one of the most celebrated rulers of all time! Written, produced and directed by Oscar – winner Robert Rossen and featuring the extraordinary Claire Bloom and a remarkable cast of thousands, this stunning portrait of one of history’s most fascinating figures is colossal entertainment and an amazing spectacle.

This was supposed to be an epic, but it was hardly that, it was like a Shakespearean play intermingled with a few badly arranged battle scenes, it is only just over 2hrs long, for an epic you would expect it to be in the region of 3hrs, but in fact it was quite boring and should have been made shorter.
Richard Burton overacts in a dodgy blonde wig, but Claire Bloom is very good and quite beautiful (still acting today at aged 89 and still looks great), Fredric March who also acted well as his dad Phillip of Macedonia, but he was only in it for a 1/3 of the movie before his character was killed off, Harry Andrews (from Kent) played Darius the Persian King reasonably ok, but looked well dodgy, he had a few hair accessories as well, Stanley Baker was underused, everyone else was there to make up the numbers.
Spain was the setting for Greece and Persia, so it looked ok (to a point), but scenery was not used much, photography was poor and the direction can’t have been up to much, because you had a stellar cast and great scenery which both were not used to their potential, so the result was only a below average film at best. It looks like it was promoted as an epic but made on the cheap. Possibly a good project for a remake, with a good director and cast, they could not do worse than this.
