Ben-Hur Gets Biblical Blu-ray Bonuses for Its Debut This Fall

Mar 28, 2011

Ben-Hur won a record-setting 11 Oscars—including Best Picture—back in its day, which ties it with Titanic and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Now details are emerging about the attractive Ben-Hur: Ultimate Collector's Edition Blu-ray that is coming this fall in celebration of the film's 50th anniversary. The film has been meticulously restored frame by frame from the original 65 mm camera negative and includes all the previous DVD bonus features. The Ultimate Collector's Edition also includes "Charlton Heston & Ben-Hur: A Personal Journey," which is a new feature-length documentary chronicling Heston's life while filming the epic. The set is bundled with a reproduction of Heston's personal diary from January 1958 through April 1960, which documents his time on production all the way through his Oscar win for Best Actor. The limited and numbered sets also come packaged with an exclusive book of rare photography, production art and reproductions from the original theatrical press book.
