During the filming of the big chariot race in the movie "Ben Hur," Charlton Heston kept losing his footing and slipping out of the chariot. After several ruined takes, director William Wyler asked Charlton what the problem was. Heston explained that while trying to act as though he was winning the race, he would look away and slip. Wyler replied, "Charlton, it’s YOUR job to stay in the chariot. It’s MY job to make sure you win the race.”
