When a Jewish prince is betrayed and sent into slavery by a Roman friend, he regains his freedom and comes back for revenge.
Stephen Boyd, and several other actors playing Romans, wore dark contact lenses, so their eyes appeared brown.
There's a Jew outside. He wants to see the Tribune Messala.
Messala: I assume he has a name.
Centurion: He says he's a prince, Prince Judah Ben-Hur.
Messala: Then treat him like one!
Messala: Tell him I'll join him.
Messala: This was his country before it was ours. Don't forget that.
After Judah denounces Rome and Esther declares that it is as if he has become Messalla, he turns to face her, in anger, but in the next frame, instead of facing her directly, he it looking at her over his left shoulder; he should be facing her or, at best, have his right shoulder facing her and looking over it.
The Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer lion is shown in a still-frame to appear looking peaceful at the beginning rather than roaring.
