Here we have one the epic films - Ben Hur 1959 starring Charlton Heston. This is the full feature on 2 x 1200ft and 1 x 1600ft reels of Super 8 in Scope with Stereo sound. Total run time is approx 3 hours 32 minutes. It has great colour and sound, just an fine emulsion line here or there.

Edits of Ben Hur on Super 8 varying from 200ft to 3 x 400ft were issued by Derann, UFA and MGM, but it is rare to come across the full feature - being a very expensive buy back in the day.

Here are a few screenshots - plenty more and a video clip of the chariot race on the listing in our Ebay Store. (Thanks to our friend Andrew for test running the whole film and taking the screenshots and video using his Scope projector)
