Travel to the time of the Romans in this third title in the "Dream Master" series from a Carnegie Medal-winning author.
This presentation of the powerful film classic features an additional five minutes cut from the films original release, plus the original overture and extended soundtrack. Director Stanley Kubrick tells the tale of Spartacus (Kirk Douglas), the bold gladiator slave, and Varinia (Jean Simmons), the woman who believed in his cause. Challenged by the power-hungry General Crassus (Laurence Olivier), Spartacus is forced to face his convictions and the power of the Roman Empire at it’s glorious height. The inspirational account of one man’s eternal struggle for freedom, Spartacus combines history with spectacle to create a moving drama of love and commitment.
Academy Award winner Russell Crowe reunites with legendary Gladiator director Ridley Scott for the epic action adventure Robin Hood. Discover the untold story of the man behind the legend as Robin, a heroic warrior, turns outlaw when he assembles a band of skilled marauders to confront injustice and lead an uprising against a weak and corrupt English King. When the rebellious hero falls for the spirited Lady Marion (Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett), he must first save her village and then confront a growing storm of threats from near and afar if he is to win her heart. As Robin and his men answer a call to ever-greater adventure, these unlikely heroes set off to battle for their country and return England to glory ... and ride into Legend.

I bought this set, because I already owned a steelbook of Gladiator, which contained the ugly old DVNRed master and I wanted to replace it. The disc in this set does indeed contain the beautifully remastered version of Gladiator, so mission accomplished :-) The transfer of Robin Hood is also great. The only bad thing about this is the transfer of Spartacus, which is heavily DVNRed and looks like DVD but since there doesn't seem to be any better BD release of the film and since it wasn't the main selling point for me anyway, I don't really care that much.
