Ben-Hur : a tale of the Christ( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Judah Ben-Hur is a young Jewish nobleman from a prominent family who is reunited with his childhood friend Messala. Messala returns to Judea as a Roman tribune. There is a genuine friendship between the two men, yet the clash of their cultures drives a wedge between them. That wedge finally drives Messala to banish Judah to the slave galleys and sends his mother and his sister to prison. From that point forward, Judah's life becomes a quest: a quest to survive and a quest for vengeance. Judah survives the galleys to become the adopted son of a Roman general, and his triumphant return to Judea permits him to challenge and subsequently confront Messala in a chariot race

Ben-Hur : a tale of the Christ( Visual )

2 editions published between 1925 and 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Judah Ben-Hur, the head of a wealthy Jewish family, is reduced to galley slave by the malevolence of his former friend, Messala, a Roman. Ben-Hur lives to avenge his family and is increasingly guided by a sense of destiny as his life intersects, at crucial moments, with that of Christ. Beset by production problems from the beginning, this was, in scale, a prototype for the Hollywood epic. Although containing impressive special effects and outstanding miniature work in its two great set pieces - the battle at sea and the chariot race - this production depended much more on 'live' staging on a grand scale than the 1959 re-make. The chariot race, one of cinema's great action sequences, was edited from 200,000 feet of film shot by more than 40 cameramen and directed by B. Reeves Eason. This is the original full-length version with an added music score by Carl Davis and the nativity scene in its original two-strip technicolor
