    Since biblical fever is in the air and Fox will release Passion Of The Christ on home video, surely now would be the perfect time for Fox to release David And Bathsheba, Story Of Ruth and Esther And The King on DVD.

    I'd personally like to see Warner release the silent Ben-Hur in the near future.

    And I third Ben-Hur(1925). The original score is probably better then the Carl Davis score.

    And how about "The Ten Commandments(1923)?

    How about a Fox Studio Classics release of The Robe, properly letterboxed, and with the alternate flat version.
    A Ben-Hur re-release would be nice, as would a Jesus of Nazareth re-release.

    Isn't the Robe already properly letterboxed? Looks fine to me.

    I read somewhere that the Robe isn't in its correct 2.55:1 proportions, that the top and bottom have simply been cropped from 2.35:1 to simulate the OAR.

    The only tie-in I know of that's for-sure is The Life of Brian being re-re-released.

    Re-promote The Omen films so we can get the opposing point of view.

    It's "Buddy Christ" rather than "Buddy Jesus," but, despite being a preacher, I would personally love a pair of Buddy Christ bookends. LOL! I absolutely LOVE Dogma.

    I was thinking of some trading cards and gum. I've always wanted to beat my neighbors little boy at his card game..

    "...Moses takes your Pokeman and splits him in half"

    "..My Jesus card revives all my soldiers and banishes your deck to hell" [​IMG] Wow, Pokeman never saw it coming.
