THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
Part of the Elmer Bernstein Memorial Film Series
Enjoying a life of ease in the court of Egypt's pharaoh, Moses discovers his Hebrew heritage and, later, God's expectations of him. He dedicates himself to liberating his people from captivity and with the aid of plagues and divine intervention manages to lead them out of Egypt and across the Red Sea. A greater challenge comes in the form of the golden calf idol, however, and it takes an unforgettable visitation by God on Mount Sinai for Moses' mission to prevail.
Starring Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Anne Baxter
Director: Cecil B. DeMille | Writers: Joseph Holt Ingraham, Dorothy Clarke Wilson, Arthur Eustace Southon

The Elmer Bernstein Memorial Film Series is designed to highlight films that are important beyond their cinematic tradition for their showcasing of great cinematic scores. Guest curator Jon Burlingame will host a talk with audience Q&A before the film.
