    I just noticed there is now a CE edition of Ben Hur. (see here) It's $60.
    Now I've seen some of the comments/complaints about the earlier regular version.
    Is this new CE any better in those regards? I usually am a sucker for special stuff; is there any real reason I should get the regular version instead of the CE?

    The actual dvd is the same. Warner just adds things like a cd or collectable cards.

    Umm...the price difference is obvious. I wanted to know if there is anything that makes the regular version better. If what Jon_W said is correct and the CE has the regular version plus more, then it is obviously not possible that the regular version could be better in any way.

    There is a company that licenses the rights to make these gift sets from Warner, they add stuff like CD sountracks, lobby cards, posters, a few frames of film from a print, that sort of thing, and then they include the same DVD Warner ships

    Personally, I think it's a total rip

    My Wizard of Oz mega-set is a total joke, I only paid $39.99 so it does not make me too mad.

    I like the Wizard of Oz big box set, and I like stuff like this in general. I guess I like paying extra for useless extra crap. I guess that's why I'll be buying the 5-disc LotR. [​IMG]
