Dream West (mini-series) - Only Broadcast Once, This 1986 Richard Chamberlain Miniseries Comes to DVD

    Richard Chamberlain heads an all-star cast in this rousing true story about the legendary explorer and politician who mapped and opened the American West. Based on the best-selling book by David Nevin, Dream West follows the adventures of John Charles Fremont (Chamberlain), the Army officer who blazed the Oregon Trail, took California away from Mexico, served as its first governor, came within the grasp of the presidency and fought for the Union during the Civil War.

    Shot over a four-month period on locations in Wyoming, Colorado, Arizona, Virginia, Utah and California, this seven-hour epic was scripted by novelist Evan Hunter and features an extraordinary cast that includes Alice Krige, Rip Torn, Jerry Orbach, Cameron Mitchell, Mel Ferrer and Oscar winners Ben Johnson (Actor in a Supporting Role: The Last Picture Show, 1971) and F. Murray Abraham (Actor in a Leading Role: Amadeus, 1984). Broadcast in April 1986, Dream West has never been repeated, making it one of the rarest and most requested miniseries in television history.
The Warner Archive Collection has today (November 13th) released a DVD of Dream West, the highly anticipated '80s mini-series starring Richard Chamberlain (Dr. Kildare, The Three Musketeers, The Towering Inferno, Man in the Iron Mask, Centennial, Shogun, The Thorn Birds) in a sweeping 337-minute drama. As a newly-available manufacture on demand (MOD) title from Warner, it's currently only available to U.S. customers at the WBshop.com online store (see button link below) for $29.95 SRP. It's expected to soon be available from Amazon's CreateSpace MOD program as well, where global customers will be able to buy it too. Here's a look at the cover art:
