BEN-HUR - CLASSIC - FULL 220 MINUTE EDITION
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.
