THE TEN COMMANDEMTS
The movie The Ten Commandments is one of those epics that were hits in the mid-twentieth century, with fewer technological resources than today, those producing miracles. This film was certainly seen by an entire generation of Christians in the early days of cinema. Again my criticisms pile up at one point of biblical film scripts done by large production companies. In order to attract audiences, they make up a story, a tale, a fiction novel to attract public attention. I am against this kind of attitude that change history, I am against these insertions that distort historical understanding of the biblical accounts. This movie invents an alleged unresolved love between Moses and Pharaoh's current wife. (By: Valdemir Mota de Menezes, The Scribe) From: Wikipedia The Ten Commandments is a 1956 American epic film that dramatized the biblical story of the Exodus, in which the Hebrew-born Moses, an adopted Egyptian prince, becomes the deliverer of the Hebrew slaves.

DeMille and starred Charlton Heston in the lead role, Yul Brynner as his adoptive brother, Pharaoh Rameses II, Anne Baxter as Nefretiri, Edward G. Robinson as Dathan, Yvonne De Carlo as Sephora, Debra Paget as Lilia, and John Derek as Joshua.
