One of the most memorable scenes on film

I was tempted to check out the unforgettable chariot race of Ben Hur on YouTube and there it was that you can watch countless times, pause and watch your favourite part from the 9 minute race. I recall watching the movie in the late 80's (maybe early 90's) at the O.A.T in I.I.T Madras, and feeling bored with the long movie. The unforgettable chariot race was of course the most loved part of the film. When the movie was screened a second time there I went with Sathish to watch just the race portion of the movie. On screen it is pure delight compared to the tiny YouTube window. Here it is on YouTube.

That was indeed most memorable... I remember seeing it from Sathyam cinemas in chennai in mid 90's. It felt really great to see it in that big screen of Sathyam. Thanks for reminding that :-)
