Filmed with a cast of thousands (as the old saying goes) this chronicle of the Old Testament is sometimes breathtaking to behold visually, though audiences did not exactly line up around the block to see it when it was originally released in the mid-'60s. 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment's DVD of the biblical epic probably won't win over many new converts, but the disc is nevertheless excellent, if a bit sparse on the extras front. The anamorphic widescreen picture (2.55:1) is wonderful and is relatively free of digital artifacts. The image is consistently sharp and colorful. To be honest, critics have never been kind to this film. But there are more than enough visually splendid (and almost surreal) moments to keep things lively, especially during the opening scenes in the Garden of Eden and the later Tower of Babel scenes. The disc has been given a new two-channel Dolby Digital English soundtrack, though the original English mono track has thankfully been supplied as well. A French mono soundtrack is also available and the disc has been given English and Spanish subtitle options. The original theatrical trailer has been included, along with other Fox DVD trailers.
