According to the mighty wikipedia (so it MUST be true) Heston was taught to drive a chariot, however it doesn't say how much of the racing he actually did. Apparently the death story is questionable

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben-Hur_%281959_film%29#The_chariot_race




I was not referring to the Heston Ben Hur re. the deaths, there was an earlier, silent movie in which there are verified deaths of both humans and horses during the chariot race.

Grumbleweed, yes it was a different era, and one that is now over, with more savy audiences very hot at spotting stunt doubles, more and more stars are encouraged to do as much of their own action work as is possible.

In silent movies nothing would surprise me! I recall the story of the stunt extra who agreed, for a few dollars more, to roll down the side of the temple building in "Intolerance". Apparently they had to "paint him in iodine".
