The film is an adaptation of a musical of the same name written by the team of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. The video version was released in 1999, directed by David Mallet and Stephen Pimlott, with Donny Osmond in the title role and Maria Friedman as The Narrator. Richard Attenborough and Joan Collins also appeared.
At the beginning of this film, The Narrator draws a school audience repeatedly into a very 20th century 'Technicolor' production of the Biblical story. Patriarch Jacob lived happily with his dozen sons, but his favoritism for bright Joseph, symbolized by the gift of a spectacular multi-colored coat, makes his brothers so jealous they end up selling him as a slave and staging his death. He rises in the service of wealthy Potifar, though his adulterous wife is falsely accused and incarcerated. His gift of dream-telling however wins him Pharoah's favor, in charge of planning for the 7 years of penury after 7 good ones he prophesied. When his brothers come to beg for food, it's time for reckoning and nobility.
