    Wow. Some incredible deals on these classics. They'd make good gifts. Interesting pairing of Ten Commandments and Ben Hur.

    "Casablanca" and "The African Queen" -- great double, as is "Ben Hur" and "The Ten Commandments" -- any details on whether these include the extras the original dvd releases had? Also is "The Ten Commandments" on one or two discs? Flipper discs?

    Nice to see Warner Bros. exploiting its new Paramount library lease and not just replenishing existing stock as needed. Can't wait for new to blu releases.

    Jeff Baker of WB HV says this in the other thread:
    "You're going to see some incredible products coming from Warner Brothers with Paramount next year. We're basically going to co-mingle the libraries. Together we're going to create multi-features that are totally logical and then we think there will be great consumer demand for. I'll give you an example. Two of the biggest epic religious films of all time Ben-Hur and The Ten Commandments, well, we got Ben-Hur at Warner Brothers and of course then The Ten Commandments was with Paramount. We're going to do a double feature on Blu-ray and standard definition of that."
    Standard definition?? Hmmm....

    When The Bourne Trilogy films were issued on separate discs and not in the box set, each disc had Blu-ray on one side and the DVD version on the other. Those are the ones I bought.

    What an extraordinary program!
    As long as quality is held, and there is no reason why it should not be, this is a huge WIN-WIN for both the studio as well as the consumer.

    These Warner/Paramount combinations aren't very helpful for people like me who identify films by the studio which made them and store their discs by studio. I kid you not - all my Warner Bros titles for example are in alphabetical order on one shelf. Where would I put BEN-HUR/THE TEN COMMANDMENTS? :D

    That's easy: just buy two copies! I'm sure the studio wouldn't mind...

    Boy I wish Warner could make a deal with Universal for their Paramount titles that they're neglecting - I'm waiting for blu rays of For Whom the Bell Tolls, Sabrina, etc....

    Sabrina/The Nun's Story

    Roman Holiday/Wait Until Dark


    She was Oscar nominated for all of these roles (and won for Roman Holiday).
