Easter classic

Who would possibly want to miss this wonderfully entertaining piece of film that taught us so much about our lives?

In 1956 this masterpiece was made, fully reflecting all the good Biblical teachings that, in my opinion, ought to govern every household in the earth through the end of eternity.

The info on this film is as follows (for anyone who cares for a refresher):

The Ten Commandments (1956)
Directed by
Cecil B. DeMille

Writing credits:
J.H. Ingraham (novel) and
A.E. Southon (novel)

Plot Outline: The Egyptian Prince, Moses, learns of his true heritage as a Hebrew and his divine mission as the deliverer of his people.

Cast overview, first billed only:

Charlton Heston .... Moses
Yul Brynner .... Rameses
Anne Baxter .... Nefretiri
Edward G. Robinson .... Dathan
Yvonne De Carlo .... Sephora
Debra Paget .... Lilia
John Derek .... Joshua
Cedric Hardwicke .... Sethi (as Sir Cedric Hardwicke)
Nina Foch .... Bithiah
Martha Scott .... Yochabel
Judith Anderson .... Memnet
Vincent Price .... Baka
John Carradine .... Aaron
Olive Deering .... Miriam

I remember my mother telling the story of going to see this film at the theater house with her younger brother (my Godfather as well). She recalled she was able to suck down two cherry Cokes before spending around 45 minutes being terribly afraid to crawl over my uncle for a trip to the restroom....and the movie was STILL not over...

All laughs aside, may I pay my special tribute tonight to this well-loved movie in my collection!!!
