Ben-Hur (play)

Ben Hur was an 1899 play starring William S. Hart (as Messala, not as Ben-Hur) and produced by Klaw & Erlanger. It was dramatized by W.M. Young based on the 1880 novel, "", written by Lew Wallace. Hart would eventually star as leading roles in silent films such as The Aryan in 1916, and become a silent screen cowboy hero.
