Title: TEN COMMANDMENTS, THE (Two Discs) / BEN-HUR (Two Discs)
The Ten Commandments (1956 feature) directed by Cecil B. DeMille's and staring Charlton Heston carries the viewer along through the vivid events of Moses' life, from his birth and abandonment through slavery and the liberation of his people. Award winning special effects create a sense of the miraculous in the giving of the Decalogue and the parting of the Red Sea. This 1956 remake is sheer pageantry and spectacle which few motion pictures can claim to equal. This is on two Discs and is 231 minutes. Also available as video VC 1195. Ben-Hur - Fiftieth Anniversary. This 1959 visual splendor, thundering action and towering drama of Ben-Hur is unmatched. Charlton Heston brings a muscular, physical and moral presence to his award-winning role of Judah Ben Hur. Ben-Hur is on two discs and 222 minutes.
