Ben - Hur - The ultimate spectacular
There is little to say about Ben Hur that has not already been said. Probably the most spectacular motion picture of all time, the story of Judah Ben Hur - an Oscar winning performance from superstar Charlton Heston - is prehaps best known for its breath-taking chariot race.
A year to prepair, 3 months to shoot. On screen the most exciting 20 minutes ever captured on film. The race is a thunderous test of endurance for man, horse and chariot alike, climaxing in a one against one battle for victory between Ben Hur and Massala, played by Stephen Boyd.
The chariot race however is only one scene from an epic that contains some of the most memorable moments in motion picture history. Moments that earned Ben Hur 11 Academy Awards and to this day remain unequalled for sheer Hollywood spectacle.
