    Charlton Heston, in his Oscar-winning role, is Judah Ben-Hur, a Jewish nobleman in Palestine whose heroic odyssey includes enslavement by the Romans, vengeance against his tormentors during a furious arena chariot race and fateful encounters with Jesus Christ. "Best Director" Oscar-winner William Wyler masterfully grips the reins of this enduring and spellbinding spectacular.

    For the special "50th Anniversary" release, Ben-Hur underwent a $1 million restoration - frame-by-frame from an 8k scan of the original 65mm camera negative - making this the highest resolution restoration ever completed by the Warner Bros. studio.
