Rent The Ten Commandments on DVD

The Ten Commandments

1956 Rated G 3hr 40m

The story of Moses comes to life in director Cecil B. DeMille's gigantic retelling. As the Egyptian prince turned Prophet of the Jews, Charlton Heston is Biblical fury incarnate, memorably smashing God's stone tablets in the face of his golden calf-worshipping followers. Yul Brynner is the caustic Pharaoh Rameses, who pursues Moses' followers at his own peril.
