The numbers speak volumes: 100000 costumes 8000 extras 300 sets and a staggering budget in its day the largest in movie history. Ben-Hur's creators made it the best the greatest Biblical-era epic ever. Charlton Heston brings a muscular physical and moral presence to the role of Judah Ben-Hur a Jewish nobleman in Palestine whose heroic odyssey includes enslavement by the Romans a bold escape from an embattled slave galley vengeance against his tormentors during a furious arena chariot race and fateful encounters with Jesus Christ. Heston's charismatic performance brought him the Best Actor Oscar; the winner as 1959's Best Picture with the legendary William Wyler earning his third Best Director trophy the film won a total 11 Academy Awards -- a tally unequaled until 1997's Titanic set sail.Running Time: 222 min.System Requirements:Running Time 768 MinFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: ACTION/ADVENTURE Rating: NR UPC: 012569676695

Ben-Hur scooped an unprecedented 11 Academy Awards in 1959 and, unlike some later rivals, richly deserved every single one. This is epic filmmaking on a scale that had not been seen before and is unlikely ever to be seen again. But it's not just running time or a cast of thousands that makes an epic, it's the subject matter, and here the subject--Prince Judah Ben-Hur (Charlton Heston) and his estrangement from old Roman pal Messala (Stephen Boyd)--is rich, detailed, and sensitively handled. Director William Wyler, who had been a junior assistant on MGM's original silent version back in 1925, never sacrifices the human focus of the story in favor of spectacle, and is aided immeasurably by Miklos Rozsa's majestic musical score, arguably the greatest ever written for a Hollywood picture. At four hours it's a long haul (especially given some of the portentous dialogue), but all in all, Ben-Hur is a great movie, best seen on the biggest screen possible. --Mark Walker
