4. My daughter watched it for the first time last year

She was amazed "Why are they white?!"
My Mom was not happy.

It's really not a very good movie. Massive. Epic. Grand stage. But other than Heston and Yul Brenner its really overacted and weirdly cast.

9. My husband loves to watch this every year

He makes fun of me rolling my eyes at the over-acting and Hollywood-ization of the Bible.

Glad to hear Im not alone in my opinion, Pants.

27. I read once that Hollywood loved to make Biblical epics

because they could bet more past the censors. After all, "it's in the Bible" so it can't be that obscene!

31. Ah, the "sword and sandal" heyday

Along with "Ben Hur" and "The Robe" it's a grand example of Ike-era zeitgeist. A Judeo-Christian blessing on white suburbanites.
