    I also have been meaning to pick this up for the longest time and am now glad I never got around to it. This looks to be a very nice set at a very reasonable price. As mentioned above, Paramount continues to do outstanding work [​IMG]

    I haven't revisited it in a long time, but the 1999 transfer was certainly very nice for its day. I wonder how it holds up now?

    Count me in! When I got the 2-tape 35th Anniversary Edition some years back (the one in the red slipcover), that one was packed out for a VHS release, though it did have some cool trailers. (Of course, they tried to fool everyone by re-releasing it a few years after that as the 40th Anniversary Edition, just the same extras only.) Now we're getting this new DVD - sounds like a winner in my book!

    If only Paramount would give the same, if not better, treatment to Titanic...

    Paramount really should have included the silent version, also directed by Cecil B. DeMille.

    I'm very happy with the current version, the transfer is great, so I will not be purchasing this new one. And it's already anamorphic.

    With the addition of an audio commentary and a six part documentary this is top of my want list for 2004. I love these classic epic films! I saw it road-shown in the 'fifties as a youngster and was totally amazed at the parting of the Red Sea and the other special effects. If only Charlton Heston could do an introduction - that would be icing on the cake.

    I will pick this up because it is one of my favorite movies of all time, but this release really needed to hear from Mr. Heston. I can't see him doing a commentary but I can at least see him doing an interview. Also, exerpts from his autobiography that deal with TTC would have been nice. The potential for extras on this release could have been plentiful. I still have an old Cinemagic magazine that explains how the special effects were done! Jeez, they could have used that!

    I hope the six part documentary includes interviews with the surviving cast members. In addition to Heston, Yvonne De Carlo, Nina Foch and Debra Paget are still very much with us and their input would be appreciated.

    Any news on a new transfer? I've already got the current two disk which has a great transfer. If it is an improved version, I'd buy.

    The current dvd does look and sound fabulous. Like others have asked, it would be great to get confirmation whether or not this new SE will be a remastered or restored transfer????

    I'll hold off. I have the current version already and am more than satisfied with it. Sorry Paramount.

    Yes. The book Wide Screen Movies: A History and Filmography of Wide Guage Filmmaking lists the following aspect ratios for Vista Vision (1956 Vista Vision 8-perf horizontal film transport): Release Prints (cropped) 1.66:1, 1.85:1, and 2:1 and uncropped: 1.50:1 with squared corners.

    Since The Ten Commandments DVD was released in 1.85:1 I'm guessing that was the OAR.
