Judah Ben-Hur lives as a rich Jewish prince and merchant in Jerusalem at the beginning of the 1st century. Together with the new governor his old friend Messala arrives as commanding officer of the Roman legions. At first they are happy to meet after a long time but their different politic views separate them. During the welcome parade a brick falls down from Judah's house and barely misses the governor. Although Messala knows that they are not guilty he sends Judah to the galleys and throws his mother and sister into prison. But Judah swears to come back and take revenge.

This along with 'The Ten Commandments', inarguably is one of the greatest Holywood movies of all time, starring Charlton Heston. Impressive background score coupled with astonishing picturisation. Some of the largest sets yet built in Holywood, were put in place for this film. Chariot race is quite amazing.
