Top critical review
on March 21, 2001
Who is the worse actor, Charlton Heston or Stephen Boyd?
Who is the worse author, General Lew Wallace or Edward Bulwer-Lytton?
The chariot race is great, but on the way to that race you have to face hours of suffocating piety, starting with the Star Over Bethlehem and all that. It's an absolutely uninteresting story and I definitely plan never to see this old melodrama again.
