Beautiful cinematography, gargantuan sets, and silent pauses to take it all in ABOUND in this film. Still, it has great special effects (check out the parting of the Red Sea and the worship of the golden calf scene) given the date of the film.
With it's cast of thousands, it is still a picture not to be missed. However, overacting and over-posturing ALSO abounds in this movie, especially from Charlton (NRA Prez) Heston and Yul (The King and I) Brynner.
It's fun to see whom was cast in this pic like Yvonne (Mrs. Munster) Decarlo, Alfalfa Switzer from "Little Rascals", gangster movie guru, Edward G. Robinson, John (Mr. Bo) Derek , the magnificent horror master, Vincent Price, b-horror and cult movie actor, John Carradine, Herb Alpert (WHAT?), and Mr. DeMille, himself as the narrator.
A MOST excellent film for it's time...
