My 1999 submission to Turner Classic Films open soundtrack competition, to Ben Hur (MGM, 1925), the most expensive epic silent film ever made. This film has one of the first renditions of the famous Chariot race, later re-done in the 1959 version starring Charlton Heston. The track is in 5/8 and other odd timings, multiple polyrhythms layered on top of one another. See if you can count it out!
