IN SPECTACULAR DIGITAL CINEMA: CLASSICS AND RESTORATIONS ON THE BIG SCREEN
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
1956, Paramount, 220 min, USA, Dir: Cecil B. De Mille

"Let his name be stricken from every pillar and obelisk!" orders imperious pharaoh Yul Brynner, as favored son-turned-religious rebel Charlton Heston prepares to lead his people out of bondage in Egypt. Cecil B. De Mille’s glorious remake of his earlier 1923 TEN COMMANDMENTS emphasized the colossal spectacle of the biblical epic, but never downplayed the tremendous human emotions at the core of the story. (Look for Heston’s then-3-month-old son Fraser as the baby Moses in the bulrushes!) With Anne Baxter, Edward G. Robinson, Yvonne De Carlo, Debra Paget, John Derek, Nina Foch and Vincent Price, and featuring striking VistaVision cinematography by Loyal Griggs (SHANE). Edited by Anne Bauchens.
