Old School Lane Casual Chats: The Ten Commandments
In this episode of Casual Chats, Patricia and special guest Arun Mehta from The Arun Mehta Show discuss about the 1956 film The Ten Commandments in honor of Passover. Based on the 2nd chapter of the Bible Exodus, the Hebrews have been slaves to the Egyptians for over 400 years. The Egyptian Pharaoh commands to kill all the Hebrew babies to prevent them from potentially overpopulating them. One Hebrew woman builds a basket for her baby and places him in the Nile River to hide away from the soldiers. The Pharoah's daughter finds him and raises him as her own son calling him Moses. Years later, Moses believes that he's a prince and helps conquer lands and building cities for the Pharoah Seti I. Meanwhile, the Pharoah's son Rameses is jealous of Moses' accomplishments. Even Rameses' future arrange wife Nefretiri loves Moses more than him. But Moses then discovers that he is not an Egyptian prince, but a Hebrew slave. He is eventually banished and becomes a shepherd in Midian. Another few years passed and God tasks Moses to go back to Egypt and free the Hebrew slaves and take them to the Promise Land. But it won't be easy since Rameses is now the Pharoah and is refusing to let the Hebrews go. When the film premiered in theaters, it was a huge success making $122 million dollars out of a $13 million dollar budget. It received critical acclaim for its story, actors, music, and special effects. Nowadays, it's a cinematic classic that gets played on TV during Passover every year. What did they think of the film?
