Here is a brilliant painting (oil on canvas) that captures a terrific moment from the chariot race. The painter's name is not given, but he/she has done too well!

Here is a blogger who does not find anything interesting about ben-Hur... who is dismissive of all its great scenes like the Nativity , the Sea-battle and even the romance between Judah and Esther... but the only thing he respects is the chariot race. Well, better something than nothing...

Hmmm....that is an interesting blog, although of course I strongly disagree with his take on the film being so boring, etc. etc. But I do like seeing the frames of the stunt in the chariot race.

Hardly agree with anything he had to say. He must've been the only one in the US who didn't enjoy the film when it came out.

While I love the chariot race, for me, it is not actually the most significant part of the film or not even necessarily the most exciting part. I guess for me, the more exciting part is when Judah finally realizes who Jesus is and says "I know this man!" and then also at the end when he tells Esther that the sword is taken out of his hand and of course also when he sees his mother and Tirzah healed and goes up the stairs to them. And while the stunt that was an accident does add something to the chariot race scene, I think that the film would have been just as good if that accident did not happen.

Oh, I also recently saw "Tirzah" (is it Cathy O'Donnell?) on an episode of PERRY MASON!

Has anyone here ever seen Stephen Boyd's work in "The Bravados" or "Shalako"? The man seemed to have quite a flair for villains and antagonists.

Can't say that I have. Are they any good?

They may not be "High Noon" but they're solid westerns in their own right, with "Bravados" doing it's best to teach its audience a lesson about not going off half cocked & all vigilante on someone just because they "fit the part" of a criminal.
