Last night I watched the superb Ben Hur documentary on the dvd. Very well researched imo and thought it was just a bit too short, could have gone on for another hour as I discovered so many new insights. The stage play must have been awesome in those days, funny to hear that when Massala won the race, they carried on regardless. Is there a full lenght version available of the 1907 Ben Hur version. They showed a lot from the silent 3 hour Ben Hur version to my surprise. Will MGM ever get around to release that version ? I certainly hope so. Also what was very strange & wonderful to see was Leslie Nielsen's screentest as Massala.
