The chariot race sequence in the 1959 film “Ben Hur”

While visiting relatives for the Christmas period, I caught some of “Ben Hur” on television, a film I have of course seen before. But I wanted to see the famous chariot race sequence again.

It is a terrific piece of crinematography, created at a time when there were no computer generated effects. You can read about the creation and shooting of the sequence here.
