Watching Ben Hur in bed, and nursing the hangover from hell…

Incidentally, would it be blasphemous for me to say that there are slightly homoerotic undertones to Ben Hur? *g*

I love me a bit of Charlton Heston though, *ooh er missus*…

    Karen, that movie is well known for its homoerotic overtones. Take care of that hangover!

    Yup. Only Charlton Heston wasn’t allowed to know. *g*

    Manly men doing manly things with big oars, stallions and whips? Naah, no homoerotic overtones going on there… LOL
    Just hope my Mama never figures it out; she loves that film! (The book was pretty darned good, btw.)

    I used to like Charlton Heston until he revealed himself to be a gun-toting, racist member of the NRA.

    Really Dawn? Wow, what a damn shame!

    On a side note, TTG and I went to Blackpool this weekend, (I’ve never come across so many dirty trailer trash types in my life) the last straw was when we went to a souvenir shop, and found a wall full of replica guns on sale.

    I was thoroughly disgusted, and we left the shop in protest, without buying anything.

    The gun that killed poor Rhys Jones, probably came from a shop just like that one. It makes me sick.

    Gore Vidal took Stephan Boyd (Messala) aside and told him to play it as if Messala and Judah had been lovers, parted over politics.

    IOW, about the same thing Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart did with X-Men, only Boyd and Heston got spears…
