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.

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

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Rouben Mamoulian ( Visual )
10 editions published between 1931 and 2009 in English and German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in a vision of London rendered strikingly atmospheric by Karl Struss' chiaroscuro, this is widely regarded as the best of the film adaptations of Stevenson's novella. Jekyll, arrogant in his god-like presumption, is nevertheless presented as having his natural sexual need frustrated by social convention. Mamoulian said that he was more interested in the conflict between nature and civilization than between good and evil. Far from representing a liberation of Jekyll's sexuality, Hyde is a product of its repression. Although made prior to the tighening of the production code, Mamoulian's film was subsequently heavily cut by Paramount and has circulated for many years in shortened form. The original version has recently been released on videocassette and a copy is included with the film

She persuades him to drown his virtuous wife in order to be with her. This is one of the most moving stories ever told on screen - a tale of temptation, reconciliation, reconsecration and redemption, told with a lyrical simplicity that gives it the timeless universality of a fable
