VIDEO SYNOPSIS

"He was not a commander or a ruler of nations, nor did he have scientific gifts. Yet this small, modest man did what others before him could not. He led an entire country to freedom. And he gave his people hope.

"Gandhi, the man of the century, is explored in the motion picture experience of a lifetime. A vision of the heart and soul of a man and an entire nation is so vividly portrayed in a masterful epic that, after 20 years in the making, won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay.

"Gandhi once said, "Simple truth is more powerful than empires. The way of truth has always won." In stirring detail, Gandhi's prevailing truth explodes on the screen: as a defiant lawyer in South Africa; on his ashram in India where fixing a goat's sprained leg is as important as discussions of political strategy; at the horrific massacre at Amritsar where the British opened fire on 15,000 unarmed men, women and children; and at the dramatic march to the ocean where Gandhi led thousands of his fellow Indians in proof that the salt in the sea belonged to all and was not a British commodity. This is a collage of strength and endurance set in panoramic vistas that celebrate India and its people, where Gandhi's spirit ultimately triumphs - even after death.

"A distinguished cast of characters surround Academy Award-winning Ben Kingsley as Gandhi, including Candice Bergen, Martin Sheen, John Gielgud and Trevor Howard. An electric combination of breathtaking photography, acting and direction makes GANDHI a masterful motion picture classic - a movie as timeless as Gandhi himself."

VIDEO SYNOPSIS

"General George Armstrong Custer... fearless, ruthless, always victorious.

"Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse...Sioux war chieftains desperate to save their tribes from annihilation.

"The day these legendary leaders and their armies met at the Battle of the Little Bighorn has gone down in history as Custer's Last Stand: a decisive showdown that cost Custer his life, and ultimately, proved to be the beginning of the end for the American Indians and their way of life.

"Now the danger and excitement of one of the most legendary chapters in American history unfolds in this action-packed epic saga of courage and honor, victory and defeat-shown for the first time from both points of view. Based on Evan S. Connell's national best seller, this electrifying adventure combines powerful performance and impeccable historical authenticity for an entertainment experience the Los Angeles Times called, "First-class, grandly staged filmmaking."
