    Ben-Hur (MGM, 1925). Photos (35) (11" X 14").
    Vintage gelatin silver, double weight, matte finish photos. An epic tale of the conflict between Rome and Christianity,Ben-Hur was certainly one of the high points of the silent era. At a cost of $4 million, it was easily the most expensive silent film ever made. Directed by Fred Niblo and starring Ramon Novarro, Carmel Myers, May McAvoy, Betty Bronson, and Francis X. Bushman. Five of the images are mounted on cardstock, twenty-two are on matte, double weight stock with a 2" X 3" border, seven are printed on matte, double weight stock with a 1/8' border, and one photo is on glossy, single weight stock with a 1/8" border. Each photo may have one or more of the following: corner bends/chips, edge wear, creasing, light surface abrasions, faint stains, and/or writing or stamps on verso/recto. Overall, these very rare photos have retained an admirable appearance. Fine/Very Fine.
