Who You Callin' Ben Hur

Silent screen star and tragic homosexual Ramon Navarro was born on this day in the year 1899 in Durango, Mexico - his family came to the US as refugees from the Mexican Revolution. Trained as a ballet dancer he worked his way up the Hollywood ladder from extra to "The New Valentino" in just a few years time; his skimpy little slave outfits in the 1925 version of Ben-Hur apparently caused quite "a sensation." But who's sensational-ist?

That picture of Charlton Heston is from The Ten Commandments, not Ben Hur.
