" Plot: A Jewish prince seeks to find his family and revenge himself upon his childhood friend who had him wrongly imprisoned. Director: Fred Niblo Stars: Ramon Novarro, Francis X. Bushman, May McAvoy Date of Discussion: 10/8/13 Quote Unquote Sir: 1925's "Ben-Hur" is a historical drama with a character and story arc that's fairly common in fiction. It's about a brave and heroic man living in a time of oppression and tyranny from a powerful, corrupt regime, exerting its influence unjustly "

"The first attempt to film the chariot race was on a set in Rome, but there were problems with shadows and the racetrack surface. Then one of the chariots' wheels came apart and the stuntman driving it was thrown in the air and killed. A staged fire on one of the ships got out of control. Armor-clad extras had to jump in the water. There is conflicting information as to whether any of them were killed. "
