There is no arguing that Cecil B. DeMille was one of the greatest directors of his time. His films such as The Greatest Show On Earth and Sunset Boulevard are classics but perhaps he is best known for, not one but, two versions of THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. Just in time for the spring holiday season a special Blu-ray Digipack of these two films is being released on March 10, 2020. FlickDirect, in conjunction with Paramount Pictures, would like to give two people the chance to win a copy of the special edition Blu-ray Digipack which includes both the 1923 and 1956 versions of the movie and a 16-page booklet with rare photos and historical information about both films.
To enter simply follow these 4 easy steps:

We will choose two entries at random to win this great prize.
For sheer pageantry and spectacle, few motion pictures can claim to equal the splendor of renowned director Cecil B. DeMille's 1956 epic THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. Arriving in time for Easter gift-giving, the beloved masterpiece will be presented in a new Blu-ray Digibook on March 10, 2020, from Paramount Home Entertainment.
This spectacular release features three Blu-ray Discs™ and includes not only the fully restored 1956 version of the film but also DeMille's original 1923 silent version, as well as a 16-page booklet featuring rare photos and historical facts about both productions. The set also includes an in-depth, 73-minute documentary entitled "The Ten Commandments: Making Miracles," commentary on the 1956 film by Katherine Orrison, author of "Written in Stone: Making Cecil B. DeMille's Epic, The Ten Commandments," newsreel footage of the film's New York premiere, theatrical trailers, hand-tinted footage of the Exodus and Parting of the Red Sea sequence from the 1923 version, a two-color Technicolor segment, and photo galleries.
DeMille's last motion picture made Charlton Heston a superstar and remains a cinematic triumph and perennial fan-favorite. Filmed in Egypt and the Sinai with one of the biggest sets ever constructed for a motion picture, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS tells the story of the life of Moses (Heston). Once favored in the Pharaoh's (Yul Brynner) household, Moses turned his back on a privileged life to lead his people to freedom.
