Had never even heard of this movie. I managed to stumble across it right near the beginning. Paul Newman, Eva Marie Saint, and a pile of excellent actors did a fine job portraying a story of the founding of modern Israel.

I stumbled upon it quite a few years ago. Great flick, and the theme song by Hank Mancini is ...

Epic!

The dialogue alone had me fixated on the TV immediately.

You know I haven't watched it yet, but I know the theme. It's incredible. I just made a lead sheet for it recently to learn it.

There are two amazing versions I would like to link here. One is from the great old muzak cd "Provocative Percussion" vol 3 I believe. Great playing and arrangement. The link sounds awful, the reissue CD's are amazing.

The progression in the horns at 2:33 is so nice.

Love this composition. So heavy and beautiful.

and of course Johnny Smith's version is ridiculous.

I love Newman. I'll have to check it out.

Didn't Exodus come out around the same time as Ben Hur?

It's a story near to my family's (distant) experience there. Required reading (and watching) for all good Jews. ;o)

I read the book and wrote a report on it for a class in HS. I chose it from a list!
Still have yet to see the movie as the book was very memorable.

The movie is quite intense. Now I need to read the book (the new one....I read "the Old Testament one" as a youngster).
