THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (1923) B/W (& C?) "silent" 146m dir: Cecil B. DeMille

w/Theodore Roberts, Charles de Roche, Estelle Taylor, Rod LaRocque, Richard Dix

Epic "silent" film mixes the Biblical tale of the Israelites' flight from Egypt with a contemporary parable about two brothers, one evil, one angelic. Terrific special effects and production values highlight DeMille's grand epic. Some of the film was originally shot in two-color process, but AMC has not announced whether this is the case for the print they are showing.
