Description

Ben-Hur was a 1959 American epic historical drama film, directed by William Wyler and starring Charlton Heston. A remake of the eponymous 1925 silent film, both movies were adapted from Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ. The 1959 version had the largestbudget ($15.175 million) as well as the biggest sets built of any film produced at the time. Costume designer Elizabeth Haffenden oversaw a staff of 100 wardrobe fabricators to make the costumes, and a workshop employing 200 artists and workmen provided the hundreds of friezes and statues needed in the film. The nine-minute chariot race has become one of cinema’s most famoussequences, and the film score, composed and conducted by Miklós Rózsa and presented here in its entirety, is the longest ever composed for a film, and was highly influential on cinema for more than 15 years.It won a record 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director (Wyler), Best Actor in a Leading Role (Heston), and Best Musical Soundtrack (Rózsa).
