|Long Description||Ben-Hur scooped an unprecedented 11 Academy AwardsÂ® in 1959 and, unlike some later rivals, richly deserved every single one. This is epic filmmaking on a scale that had not been seen before and is unlikely ever to be seen again. But it's not just running time or a cast of thousands that makes an epic, it's the subject matter, and here the subject--Prince Judah Ben-Hur (Charlton Heston) and his estrangement from old Roman pal Messala (Stephen Boyd)--is rich, detailed, and sensitively handled. Director William Wyler, who had been a junior assistant on MGM's original silent version back in 1925, never sacrifices the human focus of the story in favor of spectacle, and is aided immeasurably by Miklos Rozsa's majestic musical score, arguably the greatest ever written for a Hollywood picture. At four hours it's a long haul (especially given some of the portentous dialogue), but all in all, Ben-Hur is a great movie, best seen on the biggest screen possible. --Mark Walker|

- Fixed a but fix that was effecting some users. When trying to upload a picture directly from the camera some people got an error. This should be fixed now and everyone should be able to take pictures and directly upload.
- Added some polish to the history list. Thumbnail images and expanded product descriptions are now visible for UPC, EAN, ISBN lookups.
- Other back end polish. Some improvements were made in various places to be more memory effecient. A couple routines that could run a little long have been moved to the background to keep the user interface moving quickly and prevent the app from exiting needlesly.
