Great news!
Ben-Hur (with Casino Royale) finally arrive to Russia! Fantastic news. But...
I need to wait another 12-14 days till it arrive to me mad


So did your copy ever arrive, J B Fan? Also -- I bet you're the only guy on your block with a copy of the FSM BEN-HUR album, right?

Yes, it's arrived in time (12 after my message here, so I was right in my prediction wink)
And I hope that I'm not the only one who like FSM & Rozsa epics in Russia. But who knows about it for certain? Only Chris from SAE big grin

That's an interesting question. Do you know if Ben-Hur was ever widely shown in Russia? Miklos Rozsa was under the impression that the film was not shown even in Hungary during the Communist era. That is why we in the Rozsa Society have never had a subscriber in Russia -- and only a very few in Hungary.

The first pressing of 2000 units sold out in the first two weeks. Lukas then decided to make more because he had a hot seller on his hands. Some members were upset by this and were discussing this for days afterward. That's probably the talk you are remembering.
