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)!

Anyways, My Father Is A Big Fan Of Charlton Heston And Has Virtually Seen All Of His Movies! One Day, He Bought 3 Of He... read more

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.

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. He soon finds, however, that his friend has changed and has become an arrogant conqueror, full of the grandeur of Rome. When Judah refuses to divulge the names of Jews who oppose Roman rule, Messala decides to make an example of him and sends him off as a galley slave. Through fate and good fortune, Judah survives the galleys and manages to return to Jerusalem in the hopes of finding his mother and sister, who were also imprisoned, and to seek revenge against his one-time friend.

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1950's) (127 movies items)

" Notes: After all these years, it remains such an entertaining epic, even if it takes hours to finally reach the finish line. Nowadays, almost 60 years after this movie was released, you can see that it was actually seriously ahead of its time and preceded all the huge blockbusters which are currently ruling the box-office. It was also rather interesting that at least half of the storyline in 'Gladiator', a seriously overrated 'classic' in my opinion, was pretty much lifted from this movie. Any"
