BOOK OF THE WEEK (LIBRO DE LA SEMANA)

I was touring the Governors Place in Santa Fe and was surprised to learn that a book I read many years ago, Ben Hur, was written there at the Governors Place.

It is a rather long book, so you may want to watch the movie before or instead of trying to read the book.

Ben Hur

by Lew Wallace

MOVIES OF THE WEEK (PELÍCULAS DE LA SEMANA)

Ben Hur (1959)

I saw this film so long ago, I can’t recall much about it.  Perhaps,  it may be worth taking another look at it; at least before you attempt to tackle the book.

Critics Consensus: Uneven, but in terms of epic scope and grand spectacle, Ben-Hur still ranks among Hollywood’s finest examples of pure entertainment. (Source: Rotten Tomatoes)

The Middle

By Zedd, Maren Morris, Grey

  1. I have not seen the newer Ben Hur movie but I really enjoy the Charlton Heston version. The chariot scene is intense and would be amazing on the big screen. It’s a powerful story.

    • Thank you for commenting Melissa. I haven’t seen the newer Ben Hur movie either; but now that you mentioned it, I just ordered the DVD from Netflix. Thank you for commenting and I trust you are doing well.
