    The Agony and the Ecstasy
    Now, for the first time, the acclaimed epic starring Oscar® Winners Charlton Heston* and Rex Harrison** is available on Blu-ray! Despite the grueling physical demands involved, renowned Renaissance artist Michelangelo (Heston) spends more than four years creating the Sistine Chapel’s spectacular ceiling fresco. All the while, he questions his own religious views and battles with the man who commissioned him, Pope Julius II (Harrison).

    Fantastic! Can't get enough 70mm productions on Blu-ray! 2014 is shaping up very nicely.

    I'm DEFINITELY in for a Blu of this.

    In fact, my DVD of this film has just been loaned to my daughter and her husband. When I pulled it off the shelf for them I was obviously thinking about how terrific a Blu of this would be.

    This was shot in Todd-AO and I wonder how much effort they will make in the transfer and mastering....It should be made into a demonstration-quality BRD.

    If the wine is sour, throw it out!

    I think the transfer was done at the same time as THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN AND THEIR FLYING MACHINES. Which was about three years ago. At least that was the news discussed at the time

    Chuck Jones made a parody of Casablanca called Carrotblanca.....

    Too bad he didn't make The Agony and the Eggstasy starring Bugs Bunny as Michelangelo and Porky Pig as Pope Julius II.

    Bugs drops paint on Porky's bald head....

    Eh, what's up doc?

    When will you make an end?

    When I finish dropping enough paint to cover your bald spot, Your Hogginess.
