Image from the film Ben Hur
Winner of an unprecedented 11 Academy Awards® in 1959, Ben Hur is a landmark in epic filmmaking. The film has undergone a $1 million restoration – frame by frame using an 8K scan of the original 65mm negative, making it Warner Bros. highest resolution restoration to date. Charlton Heston brings a physical and moral presence to his Oscar® winning role of Prince Judah Ben-Hur. His heroic odyssey includes enslavement by the Romans, vengeance against his tormentors, and fateful encounters with Jesus Christ. The restoration is a ‘must’ to see on the big screen.
