            Our World History AP exam had a question pertaining to this movie and its characters. I would not have watched it except that it was a requirement. My NoNi bought it for me so that we could watch it together because she watched it as a girl when it first came out.

              Love it on the large screen tv. Color and sound are as good as it was in the theater in Journal Square many, many years ago, and I didn't have to go with my Sunday School Class.

                  Tried to find this for a couple of years...never even thought about TCM!! Silly me!!

                  First saw as a child, and wanted to re-live all the wonderful music, characters and story again as an adult.

                          Outstanding movie with a great set of actors. Who could not love Charleston Heston as Ben Hur after he was Moses. Writing was great, the characters well developed, and the violence really was just a part of the story as opposed to everything and no story, as many times one sees in current movies. Ben Hur is a classic and up there with "Singing in the Rain", "Wizard of OZ" "Gravity", "Forest Gump", "North By Northwest". I could go on. The chariot race was amazingly filmed and just by coincidence filmed almost exactly as the black and white silent Ben Hur chariot race. I think it was William Wyler who worked on the orginal silent Ben hur and when he directed this version used the same camera angles. ( Thank you that tidbit, Robert Osborn). Great movie.
