Pivotal PM

ImageDisraeli (Koch Lorber)
In this 1978 BBC mini-series, Ian McShane flavorfully plays the 19th century British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli–the first (and thus far only) Jewish PM in British history. At well over four hours, Disraeli is a thorough depiction of the world Disraeli helped change as he led his nation during a pivotal time. In addition to McShane’s excellent portrayal, Disraeli also contains good support from other stalwart British actors and precise direction by Claude Whatham.
