    CROMWELL
    **************************
    Academy Award®-Winner - Best Costume Design
    New to DVD on October 7

    * * * * Culver City, CA (July 28, 2003) - Two-time Oscar®-winner Sir Alec Guinness (The
    Bridge on the River Kwai) and Golden Globe-winner Richard Harris (Camelot, Harry Potter and
    the Sorceror's Stone) star in the sweeping, handsomely-mounted epic drama CROMWELL
    recounting the battle which raged between the monarchy and a commoner over the very soul of
    Great Britain, debuting on DVD October 7 from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment.

    In 17th-century England, ambitious country gentleman Oliver Cromwell (Harris) dared to
    challenge the political oppression and corruption that besieged his nation. *Watching his power
    being usurped by a commoner, King Charles I (Guinness) springs to challenge his adversary. *
    Cromwell is drawn into the tangled web of religion and politics that result in the British Civil
    War, pitting the two men against each other in which one will become absolute ruler; the other
    will be executed. *

    Rousing battle sequences, excellent lead and supporting performances from Robert
    Morley, Dorothy Tutin and Timothy Dalton, Academy Award®-winning costume design,
    Golden Globe-nominated Original Score and spectacular photography by renowned
    cinematographer Geoffrey Unsowrth (Cabaret, Tess), make CROMWELL an outstanding
    historical drama in the rousing tradition of Braveheart.
