Period and Historical
When people talk about an "old school Hollywood epic," it's normally Ben-Hur they have in mind. In this story set in the time of Christ, a Jewish prince is seeking revenge after being betrayed and sent into slavery by a childhood friend, who then became a Roman commander. Intersecting with Biblical events, this is film-making on a huge scale and packed full of memorable sequences, such as the scenes in the slave galleys and a gripping chariot race that remains one of the most memorable set-pieces seen in Hollywood cinema.
