Summary of Season 1 (1957) - 4 discs

In this epic adaptation of the Mikhail Sholokhov novel, the life of one man -- a fiery Russian Cossack -- is viewed in the context of a decade that saw World War I, the Russian Revolution and Russia's civil war. After fighting in World War I, Grigori Melekhov (Pyotr Glebov) returns home only to engage in a different battle -- this one against his father, who's forced him into an arranged marriage. Sergei Gerasimov directs this visual stunner.
