I just finished watching The Ten Commandments and let me tell you..
The Bible (Here's my favorite version from Amazon)
The Narrated Bible in Chronological Order (NIV)
Moses and other Bible Characters
Cecil B. DeMille
Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Anne Baxter, Yvonne De Carlo, Edward G. Robinson, Debra Paget, John Derek, Cedric Hardwicke, Nina Foch, Martha Scott, Judith Anderson, Vincent Price, John Carradine, Douglass Dumbrille
First, remember, the movie was made in 1956.
During a time when the term "special effects" was something of the future or even science fiction.
Even today, with all of our technology and experiences from the past, Bible movies fail to compare with the epic classic starring Charlton Heston.
I believe the movie truly captures the majesty of the Egyptian empire at its height, lavish stones, statues, buildings, palaces, large palaces, and all other types of splendor and majesty fit only for kings.
Of course, nobody can say with any assurance, but this film makes a compelling case as far as the lifestyle of the ruling classes and the royalty.
Second, the movie builds quite brilliantly on the life of Moses and his role as a prince of Egypt. He is depicted as an unselfish, caring and wise man with a larger purpose than self.
Rest of review coming soon
