It’s always great to see classic films on Blu-Ray. But the studios seem to be increasingly… imprecise when they declare that this or that disc is a special anniversary edition of the movie in question.
Case in point: a “50th anniversary edition” of the 1959 version of Ben-Hur was released in… 2011, which was actually the 52nd anniversary of that film.
And now, a “40th anniversary edition” of Franco Zeffirelli’s 1977 miniseries Jesus of Nazareth is due to come out this year… which is actually the 39th anniversary of that miniseries.
Ah well. In any case, the Blu-Ray comes out on February 23, and you can order it here.
