10 Commandments re-released (the ones by De Mille) for 55th anniversary with new features

 

Paramount released the 55th anniversary edition of “The Ten Commandments” in DVD and Blu-ray today. For my capsule review click here and scroll down.

Did you know that Charlton Heston’s son Fraser played the baby Moses? Son Fraser narrates the new documentary included in the new release – and says he was born just in time to play this key role!

Here’s an interview with Fraser by James Plath Fraser Heston talks about the making of The Ten Commandments

As one of the best movies ever made, if this film is not in your DVD collection, it would make a nice gift for the family.

What I enjoyed was learning how much of the film was shot on location in Egypt – I thought it was all on a sound stage or in the Mojave.
