Synopsis

The casting of Louis Gossett, Jr., as Anwar Sadat in this dramatization of the Egyptian leader's life, from his early years as a young officer fighting the British to his assassination thirty years later, brought the wrath of Egypt against Columbia Pictures and the film's producers and star, all of whose films were, briefly, banned in that country. This two-part, four-hour Operation Prime Time entry -- filmed in Mexico -- came on the heels of the success of "A Woman Called Golda," in which Sadat (played by Robert Loggia) was personified. Gossett received an Emmy Award nomination as outstanding Actor in a Drama Special.
