Judah Ben-Hur is a young Jewish nobleman from a prominent family who is reunited with his childhood friend Messala. Messala returns to Judea as a Roman tribune. There is a genuine friendship between the two men, yet the clash of their cultures drives a wedge between them. That wedge finally drives Messala to banish Judah to the slave galleys and sends his mother and his sister to prison. From that point forward, Judah's life becomes a quest: a quest to survive and a quest for vengeance. Judah survives the galleys to become the adopted son of a Roman general, and his triumphant return to Judea permits him to challenge and subsequently confront Messala in a chariot race

"Tells the story of a Eurasian, Joan of Arc-like heroine, Mahlee, who forsakes her own people to live among white Europeans, until political tumult draws her back across the color line to foment anti-imperialist uprising in China's 1900 Boxer Rebellion. While Mahlee literally "hears voices" (à la Joan of Arc) that compel her to revolutionary action, star actress Alla Nazimova doubles in this role as Mahlee and as her estranged white [half]-sister, Blanche Sackville. Blanche's sister from another mother (i.e. their white British father's Chinese mistress), Mahlee struggles with her simultaneous attraction and repulsion towards her kinfolk colonizers-- and more pointedly with the politics of British colonialism in fin-de-siècle China"--FWMF website, viewed August 5, 2014

Greed by Jonathan Rosenbaum( )

3 editions published between 1924 and 2011 in English and German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MGM, horrified, prised the film from Stroheim's grasp and hacked it to pieces, eventually releasing it at less than a quarter of its original length. It was a failure. Stroheim's career as a director never recovered, and he was forced to revert to acting, largely in the role of stereotypical Prussian which had first gained him entry into Hollywood. Since the film's initial release, rumours have abounded as to which scenes from McTeague were actually shot, how the first cut related to a 3 1/2-hour version Stroheim edited himself, and how MGM's shorter version was arrived at. Jonathan Rosenbaum has made a meticulous study of all the sources. In a fascinating piece of detective work he reconstructs the history of one of cinema's greatest ruins
