Ben-Hur 1925

Long time without giving a silent movie recommendation.

Ben Hur. The Tale of the Christ done in 1925 and directed by Fred Niblo, beautiful in many aspects, one of the first long long long movies done in that period more than 2 hours maybe one of the surprises from that time is to have Ramon Novaro in the lead part (One of the first mexican actors to be recognized, probably him and Dolores del Rio being big stars in both markets spanish and english).The spotlight scenes are in technicolor.

A must to watch!
