This was actually shot in 1964, but it was deemed to be not fit for airing and was subsequently shelved. Four years later, when stars Adam West and William Shatner had each reached a certain level of fame to get respectable ratings for the show - West was in the throes of Batman-mania from the success of his Batman (1966) series and Shatner was the star of Star Trek (1966) - it was released as a made-for-TV movie.

If I remember correctly, I only saw this flick once, and that was many years ago. Therefore I don't remember much about it except that it was so bad, it was hilarious. First of all was William Shatner in his usual hammy, overacting mode (did he have any other?). As a horse lover, I could not help but notice that Alexander's famous horse, Bucephalus, was played by an American Saddle Horse, which breed was not developed for many centuries after Alexander's time. However, I must recommend "Alexander the Great" mainly because it contains probably my favorite line in motion picture history. Alexander says of Bucephalus, "Did I not tell you that among horses he too is a God?" This stinker is worth seeing for that alone!
