Sharpe The Legend (1997)


The Legend is a kind of summary of the entire Sharpe series.

Essentially, it is clips from the series strung together to summarise the life of Sharpe, with a narrator who fought with Sharpe acting as the link.

Sharpe’s rise from the ranks to become an officer is chronicled.


Rifleman Cooper (Michael Mears) fought alongside the swashbuckling Richard Sharpe throughout the Peninsula Wars.

In this special, video-only collection, he looks back at all the adventures and romances that his senior officer got up to, showing clips from the best of the long-running ITV drama.
