WonderfulBy a customer from Nuneaton , 18 Mar 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]A wonderful bit of escapism. Perfect casting, perfect locations! I rented this DVD having watched an episode of Quantum Leap with Scott Bakula singing exerpts from this particular musical. I loved the music so much that I just had to see the rest of it. Well worth it. Peter O'Toole was superb - I didn't know he could sing! And to see John Castle being so young was an absolute delight for me!! All round excellence! Watch it!

Magnificent ManchaBy Emjay69 (341 reviews) from Kidlington, Oxford , 28 Oct 2011Absolute classic. And when you consider that it's almost 40 years old it's tremendous.
A cross between a stage show and a movie adds enormously to the enjoyment and pleasure of this production.
10 out of 10
Genius Song - Good MovieBy 5ft7offootballheaven (300 reviews) from London , 12 Jun 2011Wouls have got 4 or 5 stars if it hadnt been a musical - sorry I am not a fan of musicals....BUT and its a big but, it does have the 'Impossible Dream' song running through it. The song made famous Andy Williams and the Honda advert. Its got Sophia Loren in it so I am happy, the real star of course is Peter O'Toole who is at his absolute thespian best here. Inspring story. Great song.
Just as enjoyable after nearly 40 yearsBy Chrisaljack (412 reviews) from Hellingly , 03 Aug 2010Man of La Mancha's production, sets, etc very clearly show this film's age; but its enjoyment value has not diminished. This is still a very watchable musical. The cast of Man of La Mancha is 'to die for'; Peter O'Toole, Sophia Loren, Harry Andrews.... What a pity the studios no longer think that the public want to watch films like this.
WonderfulBy a customer from Derby , 30 Sep 2009I watched this with my 13 year old son because children need a rounded education even when it comes to films. I fell in love with it again and he fell in love with the movie for the first time. A great sense of right and wrong or old fashioned manners and some great songs thrown as a bonus. Peter O'Toole and Sophia Loren play beautifully crafted roles. The richness of colour in the original film means it has worn very well for it's age and you will be drawn in as we were.
Man of La ManchaBy Miriam from Ealing , 18 Feb 2008The film is like a play within a play. There are three lovely songs in it:
Man of La Mancha, Dulcineah (not sure of the spelling) and the
well-known song the Impossible Dream.
Worth watching for the brilliant acting of Peter O'Toole.
