The Man Who Saved Ben-Hur (2015)
1h · Documentary · 1 January 2015
The Man Who Saved Ben-Hur explores my relationship with my 89-year old second cousin, Johnny Alarimo, at the end of his life. A charismatic loner, Johnny spent a dazzling career behind the scenes in show business without never forming any lasting relationships. Destine to die that way, the film is a subtle dance between a subject who wants to control his legacy, and a filmmaker/family-member who simply wants to know him.
