People thought it was the hospital scene from Gone With The Wind, but many of those figures are mannequins.

Take your pick from any that featured sports stadia filled to capacity, no CGI or artificial crowds required

According to a Google link, it was “Ghandi with more than 300,000 cast and crew. Ben Hur was also an immense production.

I always believed it was Ben Hur.

Well the scene in the Ten Commandments hired out an entire village to play the exiting Jewish nation from Egypt.
