It was a great night for "Ben Hur" at the 1960 awards. In total, the film swept 11 of the 12 categories, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor (Charlton Heston).
It's still a great movie all of these years later. I catch it anytime I get a chance. Finally, I did not know that the movie was based on a book written in the 19th century!
