Charlton Heston always delivered good performances in his films. The forthcoming "Ben-Hur" will probably be inferior to William Wyler's 1959 classic because I doubt if its male lead will measure up to the standard set by Charlton Heston. There were times when El Cid actually fought on the side of Muslims when he was out of favor with King Alfonso. He later returned to fight for the Christian cause. After capturing Valencia in 1094 he established an independent principality, which he ruled in a tolerant and pluralistic manner.
