THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, 1956. Original Style-A 1 Sheet (27″41″) movie theater poster for sale and starring; Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Anne Baxter, Vincent Price, director Cecil B. DeMille and writers Dorothy Clarke Wilson (author of the Prince of Egypt, 1949) and J.H. Ingraham author of the book Pillar of Fire, 1859. Surprisingly this film only won one Oscar for special effects despite its epic plot line and massive budget of 13 million dollars.
The story is based on the Bible and that of Moses set in ancient Egypt in the Nile river delta. Filmed on location in Abu Rudeis, Egypt. Charlton Heston was chosen due to his apparent resemblance with the statue of Moses by Michelangelo.
