My Moses Marathon

The last Day of Unleavened Bread is tomorrow (I think), and I haven’t really thought much about the Exodus. Last year, I did a Moses marathon, in which I watched a bunch of Moses movies. I’ll try that this year as well. I have Cecil B. Demille’s The Ten Commandments, The Prince of Egypt, Moses (with Ben Kingsley), Moses (with Burt Lancaster), and The Ten Commandments (with Dourgay Scott). Which will I watch first? I’m hesitant to start with my favorite (the Charlton Heston one), since I prefer to save the best for later. But I don’t want to save it for last, for then I’d be burnt out on Moses movies and wouldn’t get the emotional high I usually get out of it. Decisions, decisions!

    There is a fairly recent animated version of “The Ten Commandments.” Recently I saw part of it , and it was very good.

    The late, great Charlton Heston—hands down! He is incomparable! Period! Enjoy your marathon and the Holy Day season!

    Hey Yvette!

    I’ve not seen it, and most of the comments I’ve heard about it have been bad. But people said that the Dourgay Scott Ten Commandments was bad, and I loved that movie.

    Hi Felix!

    Yeah, I agree with you, even though my Moses Awards go to people on other Moses movies this year.
