Low cost Blu-ray alternative,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ben-Hur: 50th Anniversary Edition [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Great movie. My primary concern when I ordered was the movie would be cropped to 1.77:1. Based on information from other sources, I took a chance. Fortunately, the product details above are wrong. The back cover says the aspect ratio is 2.76:1, not 1.77:1. On my TV, it measures out around 2.65:1. It looks like this is discs 1 & 2 from the Ultimate Edition, so if you can forgo the books, nice case, and the special features on disc 3, this is a low cost alternative.

Does this include the silent version?

No. It does not include the 1925 silent version. That is on the 3rd disc of the more expensive Ultimate Edition, along with documentaries and other special features. The complete list for disc 3 is in the "Special Features" section of the Ultimate Edition. The silent version is also available from Amazon instant video.

Thank you, just as I feared. :( I actually prefer the silent version.
