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 --This text refers to the VHS widescreen edition of this video

Editorial Reviews
From The Studio
After a successful television debut, Great Figures of the Bible the special series narrated by Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel, author of more than thirty books that have been translated into 18 different languages, has been adapted into a six-part videotape series.

While Mr. Wiesel often appeared on television interviews and in news reports covering events such as his receipt of the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House to his humanitarian journey to Sarajevo, he had never before been the host of a television/video.

Yale Roe, the producer of this series, designed the programs to open the richness and the relevance of the great Rabbinic stories to both the Jewish and non-Jewish viewer. Mr. Roe, a former ABC-TV network executive and now president of Yale Roe Films, is the author of two books on the television industry and is winner of numerous awards for his productions.
