The Ten Commandments is a 1956 motion picture that dramatized the Biblical story of Moses, an adopted Egyptian prince-turned deliverer of the Hebrew slaves. It was released by Paramount Pictures in VistaVision on October 5, 1956. It was directed by Cecil B. DeMille and starred Charlton Heston in the lead role. Co-stars included Yul Brynner as his adoptive brother, Pharaoh Ramesses II, Anne Baxter as Nefretiri, John Derek as Joshua, Edward G. Robinson as Dathan, Yvonne De Carlo as Sephora, Cedric Hardwicke as Pharaoh Seti I, Vincent Price as Baka, and John Carradine as Aaron.

The Ten Commandments is partially a remake of DeMille’s 1923 silent film. Some of the cast and crew of the 1956 version worked on the original. It has since been remade again as a television miniseries broadcast in April 2006.

Adjusted for inflation, it is the fifth-highest grossing movie of all time domestically, with collections of $838,400,000. In non-adjusted dollars, it held the record as the highest-grossing film with a religious theme until the 2004 film The Passion of the Christ. In 1999, The Ten Commandments was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”. In June 2008, AFI revealed its “Ten top Ten”-the best ten films in ten “epics” American film genres-after polling over 1,500 people from the creative community. The Ten Commandments was acknowledged as the tenth best film in the epic genre.

The most spectacular scene in the movie is the parting of the RED SEA. Remember, it was shot in 1956 when today’s animation techniques were not known to man. Its still a mystery how the scene was created. See the video clip below to see the parting of red sea scene and a general story outline.

There, she is visited by an angel, who tells her that she has been chosen by God to bear his son. Despite the public scorn from an unwed pregnancy, together, Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem for a census mandated by the King. It is here, with a great celestial event revealing his prophecy, in a history-defining event, that Jesus is born.

Story of The Ultimate Gift

An extremely wise and wealthy grandfather gives his shallow, spoiled grandson the ultimate inheritance. In The Ultimate Gift, Jason Stevens, played by Drew Fuller, learns there’s more to life than money. Instead of the expected cash windfall, “Red” Stevens (James Garner) has prepared twelve gifts to be given after his death to his grandson. The series of gifts, leading up to the ultimate gift, take Jason on a challenging journey of personal growth and self-discovery.

Valuable Elements:

It’s no wonder Jason has turned out to be such a self-centered, lazy young man. He’s surrounded by rich, greedy, dysfunctional, just-in-it-for-themselves relatives. But Jason’s grandfather looks past the exterior and sees something of value hidden in Jason’s character. In his Last Will and Testament he offers Jason a series of “gift challenges” that are wisely designed to bring those rare character qualities to the surface through the refining fire of 12 difficult life-lessons.

Jason learns the gift of work, friends, the value of money, the gift of family, laughter, dreams, learning through pain, the gift of giving, gratitude, forgiveness, love and the gift of a perfect day. Ultimately he transforms into a person of depth and moral strength, receiving the “gifts” that his grandfather knew were far more precious than money. With these gifts, Jason can now make the world a better place.

Abigail Breslin is refreshing, charismatic and heart-capturing in her role as young Emily. While she and Jason discuss heaven she asks him, “Did you know God paints every color in a butterfly with his finger?” While gazing at the open arms of a Christ statue, Jason explains, “I don’t know much about God or Jesus, but I can promise you, those arms are meant for you.” Christian audiences will be pleased to hear the name of their Savior mentioned in a movie theater in this rare, respectful tone.

• True wealth is measured by one’s friendships.

• Every family, no matter how dysfunctional, has value.
• Laughter is the soul’s medicine.
• Faith can make our dreams realities.
• We gain most when we give ourselves in service to others.
• Gratitude comes from recognizing what we have, not dwelling on the things we lack.
• Living in the present and taking time for the people we cherish, is the formula for a perfect day.
