Winner of 11 Academy Awards! The numbers speak volumes: 100,000 costumes, 8,000 extras, 300 sets, and a staggering budget that in its day was the largest in movie history. But impressive numbers don’t tell the whole story. Because Ben-Hur’s creators didn’t just make it big. They 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 agianst his tormentors during a furious arena chariot race and fateful encounters with Jesus Christ.
