I saw the 3-disc DVD in the store. It looks like a thin box from the outside. How are discs housed within?

Here's a view of the inside of the Mexican edition. But you get the idea... The three-disc fold-out folds right-to-left under the case to which it is attached on the left side, the total package being 7/8 of an inch thick. In this Region 4 edition, the slipcase is separate and therefore a little thicker (it has a backside and is open on the right). In the Region 1 package, the back of the case is really the back of the Disc 1 holder. The Region 1 case also has a solid right side, which enfolds the fold-out, which means it's not really a slipcase but rather a cover, I guess. Capice?




Other difference: in the Region 1 edition, the central disc (disc number 2) has a picture of Anne Baxter on the left and Yul Brynner on the right, instead of the tablets of the law. It's a cultural thing, I guess, although punching a hole in the middle of the tablets doesn't sound very respectful to me...

By the way, don't bother looking this title up on its official website, www.paramount.com/homeentertainment , they haven't heard of it and they're still busy pushing "My Little Pony" and the VHS version of the silent film (I kid you not). I have written to Paramount Home Entertainment for a picture of the inside packaging. We'll see what happens.

The left panel is really the back of the box and is attached to it along its left edge (in the Canadian edition anyway). This image was provided by Ms. Kim Waldauer of Paramount.

I watched the last hour of ABC's HiDef broadcast of 'The Ten Commandments' last Saturday night and I have to say - I was a bit underwhelmed. The image was all a tad soft. The colours were great, but for what should have been a stellar presentation of the film, was all rather a let down...
