Ben Hur (1959)

Ben_hur_1959_posterBy Scott Goldfine

William Wyler’s majestic epic, which captured a record 11 Oscars in 1960, has returned in a glorious 70mm, six-track stereo print. Charlton Heston commands the screen as the man who rises from the depths of Roman oppression to avenge evil deeds bestowed upon himself and his family.

The years have been kind to this spectacle, which includes a classic chariot race and also stars Stephen Boyd. Rated G.

GRADE: A+
