Movie Info

Although the first part of the film is set in ancient Egypt with Moses (Theodore Roberts) and Rameses (Charles De Roche), the central focus is the 1920s story of two brothers -- John (Richard Dix) and Dan McTavish (Rod La Rocque). John, a carpenter, is the son who embodies the laws of Moses, while Dan, a corrupt contractor, lives a life of sin. When a tragedy caused by Dan kills the brothers' mother (Edythe Chapman), Dan tries to redeem his wicked ways. But more hard lessons await him.

    This movie is extremely long, so I only saw the first half, but I want to rent it again and see the second half. The special effects are spectacular, the story is brilliant, realistic, and historic, I loved this movie, it's better than the 50s remake.

    This has got to be the most over played film on TV in the world. It's okay, but it certainly feels like I'm at a play, not a movie.

    Be inspired, persecuted and be saved.

    Cecil B DeMille, as devout as any Hollywood legend could be, found his calling with this gold mine (so good he went back and hit it again 33 years later and hardly changed it at all!!!). Sex, sin, and whammo!, judgment, which seems to be just what the yokels ordered. Penned with his mostly unsung (cruel sexist world!), nearly forgotten mistress, Jeanie Macpherson, this Biblical churning potboiler is just as good, and maybe better in spots, than what came later.
