there are still thousands of catalog titles that would have a good shelf life. I think some companies are just trying to develop there own way of doing releases...warner with price breaks on box sets, fox with numbered series like studio classics and film noir, universal with the franchise packs...

Good thing I've never bought any of the previous releases. This is a definite purchase.

Great quotes

Any details on what's on the discs, besides the silent film? If there's nothing else new, might skip it. Has the movie been remastered for this release?

From dvdactive.com:

Title: The Ten Commandments
Starring: Charlton Heston
Released: 21st March 2006
SRP: Price TBC

Further Details:

Paramount has announced a new 50th Anniversary Edition of The Ten Commandments which stars Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Anne Baxter and Edward G. Robinson. As well as the 1956 Cecil B. DeMille directed film, the three-disc package will also include DeMille's 1923 silent film with Theodore Roberts. Extras on the 1956 version will include a commentary by Katherine Orrison, author of Written in Stone: Making Cecil B. DeMille's Epic, The Ten Commandments, a six-part documentary (Moses, The Chosen People, Land of the Pharaohs, The Paramount Lot, The Score, and Mr. DeMille), Newsreel: The Ten Commandments Premiere in New York, and trailers (1956 “Making of” Trailer, 1966 Trailer and 1989 Trailer). The 1923 version will again carry a commentary by Katherine Orrison, along with hand-tinted footage of the Exodus and Parting of the Red Sea Sequence. We've attached the official artwork below:

Sweet. I still haven't picked this one up yet (although I did buy the SCE for my father when it first came out). Glad I held off buying one of the SCE for myself since this one has the 1923 version as well. Looks like another preorder for me!

I held out on both prior releases, so I'll finally get it. Although, I really wish they touted a new digital remaster. The '56 film was restored by making a new dupe negative from the VistaVision B&W separations. While it looks good, I'm sure that a new HD transfer would make it look a lot better.

Well, I loved the Ben-Hur 4-disc, so I'll probably get a kick out of this one, too. (I know, I know, different studios.) The cover for the Ben-Hur set is a lot better than this one, though. Seems too busy.

I should wait for the next edition which will feature a pewter stone replica of the actual ten commandments. Of course carved into the stone will feature each commandment, all the same, reading: Thou shalt keep buying the same movie over and over.

Since this new edition features the silent version I am really tempted...

A couple of you beat me to it. At work we were saying, "Thou shalt buy this DVD!"
"Thou shalt have no other DVDs before me!" "Thou shalt not steal this DVD!"

Circuit city has it for $14.99. That's a pretty good price for a 3 disc set.

Other than the Black & White film being included in this version, is there any difference from the prior Special Edition? Any new extras? Upgrade in Picture/Audio? Thanks

All of the reviews I've read so far say pretty much the same thing: Only the silent version (and its extras) has been added. No upgrade in A/V quality or extras for the '56 version.

Having said that, if you have the least interest in silent films, I strongly urge you to consider purchasing this release. Paramount and the other studios need evidence that consumers are interested in silent films, and while a double-dip may not be desirable (or even an option for some), it may pave the way to Paramount releasing some of its superb silent holdings.

I just bought Ten Commandments along with Stalag 17:SE. Hopefully Paramount would released a special edition of Samson and Deliah another Cecil B. DeMille's film not yet out on DVD.
