Ben-Hur: Chariot Race-Part 1

"Ben-Hur" is a classic film that talks about the rise, fall and restoration of a righteous Jew who was wrongfully imprisoned for a petty crime he did not commit. Sentenced to die, scheduled to be thrown in a far off island, and his family thrown to the dungeons, Judah Ben-Hur (played by Charlton Heston) succeeded in escaping imprisonment by getting out of a sinking ship and saving the life of an influential Roman General. After finding wealth, success and favor with the general and Rome, he only had two things left to do: Finding his long lost family, and executing revenge to those who have done him wrong in the past.

In this chariot race scene, Ben Hur reunites with his old friend that betrayed him in the past. Part 1 of the race is posted below. part 2 will be posted tomorrow.

Messala: "This is the day Judah. It's between us now."
Judah Ben-Hur: "Yes, this is the day."
