Ben Hur
The numbers speak volumes: 100,000 costumes, 8,000 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.

The Ten Commandments
Throughout film history, Hollywood has produced a number of sweeping epics and generation-defining movies. However, one film - Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments - has stood the test of time. Universally recognized among critics as a cinematic masterpiece, this unforgettable motion picture has also been recognized by The American Film Institute as one of the "Top Ten" epics of all time. From its Academy Award-winning director and revolutionary Oscar-winning special effects to its memorable music score and all-star cast, The Ten Commandments presents the story of Moses in all of its stunning glory. Starring Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Anne Baxter and a "who's who" of legendary screen talent, the film was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture of 1956.

    Story line on both pictures were of the best that ever came from Hollywood. Well produced and well directed. Costume design was well thought out. A person does not have to be deep into religion to enjoy these movies.

              I enjoy different movies at different times of day and night especially when I am in the middle of creating. The 2 movies I've just received made what I do at a particular time of year perfect working material. Perfect movies, but have loved them for many years but not able to find one in particular. With the 2 in one it was PERFECTO, thank you.

                If you like Bible stories, then you'll love this
                well made movie. It is one of my favorite Bible
                story as well as many others. Charleston Heston
                is one of my favorite actors....excellent in all
                his movies...not one poorly rated. There should
                be more actors like this in other movies! Thank
                you...Helene
