OVERVIEW

powered by AFI

Brief Synopsis

Ten-hour dramatization (in four parts) of the Marco Polo odyssey, filmed in Italy, Morocco and the People's Republic of China, where it was the first western production to be made since the late 1940s, all at a hefty (by TV standards) cost of $10-million during a 13 month shooting schedule. Ken Mars

Despite the less-than-enthusiastic critical reception of "Marco Polo", this Italian-made miniseries won the Emmy Award as the Outstanding Limited Series. Its other nominations were for photography (Part 4), production design and set decoration (Part 2), costume design (Part 3), and editing, hairstyles, and sound editing (all Part 4).
