Movie Poster Mondays

US poster for the 1925 epic version of BEN-HUR. Beautiful design on this poster.

With the recent release of the HD edition of the William Wyler 1959 version of BEN-HUR, lets not forget that the silent version was most likely used as a template for multiple Oscar winning one. Many shots of the chariot race in the silent version were reused shot by shot in the 1959 version. So lets give credit where credit is due. The silent version is included in the new HD BEN-HUR pack. I would buy it but then I still don't have an Blu-Ray player.
