Ben-Hur

1959

William Wyler
Director

A nobleman has to prove himself in the Roman arena. Hollywood spectacle at its finest. The chariot race is still amazing. Ridiculously loaded four, yes four, disc set, including a terrific restoration of the 1926 silent version of same, which has to be DVD extra of the decade! Highly recommended.
