Product description

Product Description

Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner star in this classic adventure drama directed by Cecil B. de Mille. After Egyptian Pharaoh Rameses I (Ian Keith) orders the death of all firstborn Hebrew males, Moses (Heston) is spared by his mother who casts him adrift in a reed basket on the Nile. Picked up by the Pharaoh's daughter Bithiah (Nina Foch), Moses is adopted and brought up in the court of her brother Seti (Cedric Hardwicke). However, after his Hebrew heritage is revealed, Moses is banished by his half-brother Rameses II (Brynner) and sent out into the desert. When he is then given a message by God, Moses vows to return to Egypt and free his people from slavery.

From Amazon.co.uk

Legendary silent film director Cecil B. DeMille didn't much alter the way he made movies after sound came in, and this 1956 biblical drama is proof of that. While graced with such 1950s niceties as VistaVision and Technicolor, The Ten Commandments (DeMille had already filmed an earlier version in 1923) has an anachronistic, impassioned style that finds lead actors Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner expressively posing while hundreds of extras writhe either in the presence of God's power or from orgiastic heat. DeMille, as always, plays both sides of the fence as far as sin goes, surrounding Heston's Moses with worshipful music and heavenly special effects while also making the sexy action around the cult of the Golden Calf look like fun. You have to see The Ten Commandments to understand its peculiar resonance as an old-new movie, complete with several still-impressive effects such as the parting of the Red Sea. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com
