Sandokan the Epic Story (1976 Kabil Bedi)
This colossal four-hour production is often considered by far the best rendition of the Sandokan story. It traces the rise of a Malaysian hero who, embittered by the plundering and invasive Englishmen, decides to take a stand against them and restore the liberty of the Malaysian people. Aided by his best friend Yanez, a Portuguese renegade, Sandokan wages a bloody and nonstop war against the forces of Lord Brooks, his main enemy. Starring Kabir Bedi, Philippe Leroy, Adolfo Celi, Carol Andre, and others. Directed by Sergio Sollima. Counts as two titles. Dubbed in English, with Dutch subtitles.
