That's why I doubt the statuette raised any eyebrows back then. This was the same era in which wealthy women attended spas offering "uterine manipulation" to relieve female trouble. I seriously doubt those women left before they had a happy ending.
I enjoyed the silent version of Ben-Hur better than the 1950s one. God, the sea battle was incredible! (We can add blood and gore to the list of items not lacking in early movies.)
Too bad about Ramon Novarro.
