This Week on The Cine-Files we celebrate Easter by exploring one of John's favorite films, the 1959 William Wyler epic Ben Hur, starring Charleton Heston. This is a great movie in every sense of the word, with huge set pieces, big themes, incredible action sequences and powerful performances from the entire cast. Winner of 11 academy awards, including best picture, Ben Hur is a staple in any cinephile's collection.
