This review is from: The Greatest Stories Ever Told - Biblical Boxset [DVD] (DVD)
I won't comment on the films themselves as you undoubtedly know of them. However, and very pleasingly -
All the films are in their original screen ratios / anamorphic widescreen for 16:9 televisions, except The Song of Bernadette which is 4:3 B/W (which is its original). Seeing these films in 2.55:1 (The Robe, Demetrius & the Gladiators), 2.35:1 (The Bible, Francis of Assissi, The Greatest Story Ever Told, The Story of Ruth), and 2.20:1 (The Agnony & the Ecstacy) is wonderful. It is a pleasure to see a DVD set of this quality. It is a shame there are no accompanying notes however.
On a practical note the case is compact, stylish and ingenious in its design.
