1960s Technicolor Hollywood blockbuster movie. Famous for the chariot racing scene close to the end, which was the prototype for the pod race in Star Wars Episode I.
The story is set around the year 0, and describes how a man called "Ben Hur" from Palestine succeeds in life and against his adversaries by being a glowing example of the American Man.
The movie "Gladiator" has the same basic thrust, but more special effects, more realistic colour, better audio quality, and a slightly different story.
