      More than likely, your library already has this title on video. But have
      they purchased the DVD yet?

      First check to see if this title is already in your library's catalog. If it
      is, put a hold on it and check it out. If not, fill out a patron request form
      right away. This can usually be done online at your library's website.

      Comments: a classic

      From the U.S. Catholic Bishops -- Office of Film and Broadcasting
      On the Vatican's Top 45 List
      Ben-Hur (1959) Director William Wyler's classic Hollywood epic follows the
      Jewish prince of the title (Charlton Heston) after he's betrayed by his boyhood
      Roman friend (Stephen Boyd) and subjected to much misery until finally
      achieving retribution for all his suffering. The narrative's conventional melodrama
      is transformed by the grand scale of its spectacle, especially the chariot
      race, and by the stirring performances of its principals who manage to overcome
      the story's cliches and stereotypes. The U.S. Catholic Conference classification
      is A-I -- general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating
      is G -- general audiences. (MGM/UA, $29.98)
