Judah Ben Hur is a young Hebrew prince during the first century of A.D. The Romans turn him into a slave after a tragic accident. Ben Hur must win his way to freedom in the midst of the turmoil between the captive people and the Roman Empire. Enjoy the animated version of this classic. Voiced by Charlton Heston, the animation is accompanied by a delightful voice. The cartoon is appealing to children, yet it still tells the same classic tale of Christ that adults enjoy.
