William Wyler's Epic Masterpiece BEN-HUR!

This Is The 3rd Big Screen Installment From Lew Wallace's Best-Seller, Ben-Hur (The First Was A Silent One-Reel Play In 1907, The Second Was In 1925 And The 3rd In 1959, Arugably The Best Installment So Far)!

Ben-Hur is an absolutely outstanding epic story that is set in the times of Jesus. Despite Jesus is involved in Judah Ben-Hur's life, I think it is set more in an Egyptian time around the time of Moses. It is a very memorable film because of it being one of the very early epic stories. Also, I think it was the running time of the film that made it very interesting to the public as well as to the A... read more

At a distinguished party in a handsome manor, Ben-Hur presents itself as a rich & important member. Finely detailed in an aquiline manner and topped with an impressive personality, many members think he must be some important official. What they don't know is that he is the owner of the manor himself, the one who invited them all to the party! I've always imagined Ben-Hur in that sense. An outstan... read more

Description: When Prince Judah Ben-Hur hears that his childhood friend Messala has been named to command the Roman garrison of Jerusalem, he is thrilled.

" 21 April. Remains one of the grandest epics ever made, as a biblical parable or just straight-out revenge action story. The chariot race still rumbles after repeated viewings and there are many sights to behold and the impact is just as breathtaking. "
