Gettysburg (1993) (2 Disc) - David Carpenter


Released: 5th August 2002
Classification: PG
Region: 4 (Australia & New Zealand)

Summer 1863. The Confederacy pushes north into Pennsylvania. Union divisions converge to face them. Two great armies will clash at Gettysburg, site of a theology school. For three days, through such legendary actions as Little Round Top and Picketts Charge, the fate of one nation, indivisible hangs in the balance.

The bloodiest battle fought on American soil comes to the screen in a powerful production about the strategies, calculations, mistakes and heroism that turned the tide of the Civil Wara film Civil War buffs will find indispensible (Sun-Times). Tom Berenger, Jeff Daniels, Martin Sheen, Richard Jordan and more play key roles in this magnificent epic based on Michael Shaaras Pulitzer Prize-winning The Killer Angels, filmed at actual battle locations and rigorously authenticated down to the boots.

    Comments about Gettysburg (1993) (2 Disc):

    No finer portrayal of the American Civil War exists in film. Settings, characters, and episodes involved in this tragic conflict are superb. The standpoint is even-handed. Both Jeff Daniels and Sam Elliot stand out as leaders who made the Union proud, while Tom Berenger and Martin Sheen display the tenacity of the Confederacy. The re-enactment of the battle of Little Big Top is a classic. I count myself fortunate to have this superb DVD in my collection.
