Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ ★★★★★

I'm writing this review afterwards (September 2016) and, now that this past February, I have watched its more-famous remake, I must concur that it's very difficult to pick between the two masterworks, as they are quite different beasts entirely. I'm just glad that both were made, and have no wish whatsoever to see the version that came and went from theatres, even before that chariot race would have been completed...
