The Ten Commandments celebrates 60 epic years
Arguably one of the greatest epic films of all time, Cecil B. DeMille's Biblical classic The Ten Commandments celebrates its 60th anniversary with a special screening this Sunday, and again on Wednesday.
For sheer pageantry and spectacle, few motion pictures can claim to equal the splendor the 1956 epic.
Filmed in Egypt and the Sinai with one of the biggest sets ever constructed for a motion picture, the film tells the story of the life of Moses (Charlton Heston), once favored in the Pharaoh's (Yul Brynner) household, who turned his back on a privileged life to lead his people to freedom.
This beloved classic will be accompanied by special commentary from TCM hosts Robert Osborne or Ben Mankiewicz, who will provide insight, background and more, making this film come alive.
