” WRITTEN BY THE FINGER OF G-D “ AND CONSTRUCTED OF HAND HEWN FIBERGLASS OVER A WOOD BACKING AS CARRIED BY CHARLTON HESTON AS MOSES FROM MOUNT SINAI.
THESE TABLETS WERE CREATED UNDER DE MILLE’S WATCHFULL EYE AND WITH GREAT DETAIL BY PARAMOUNT PICTURES SCENIC ARTIS A.J. CIRAOLO WHO MADE THEM TO RESEMBLE CARVED GRANITE WITH IRREGULAR CHIPS, CRATERS AND VARIOUS IMPERFECTIONS SO THAT THEY WERE RESEMBLED TO BE CARVED WITH “G-D’S FIRE BOLTS “... ( It was De Mille’s attention to detail led this film to be the most expensive film of its day )
THIS IS ONE OF THE SETS [CIRAOLO] KEPT AFTER THE PRODUCTION AND WAS LEFT WITH HIS FAMILY FOR ALMOST FIFTY YEARS.
What more could one need in life? You can own the Ten Commandments. Wanna rain some wrath-of-God-ass shit down on your enemies for their heretical apostasies? THE POWER CAN BE IN YOUR HANDS! Wanna hang ‘em in a school in Alabama? NOBODY CAN STOP YOU! Feel like adding some of your own a la Moral Orel?
Thou shalt not make douchey orgasm faces whilst thou guitar soloest.
Thou shalt break it off with thine S.O. before, not after, thou schtuppest his or her bestie.
If whilst driving thou seest a pedestrian clad in a Slayer shirt, thou shalt roll down thine window and yellest ‘SLAYER!’
You can do that, THEY’RE YOUR COMMANDMENTS!
Yeah, go ahead, FUCK WITH ME!
OK, tone shift, here. I’d like to leave you with a very cool thing: Cecil B. DeMille himself appears in and narrates this short film about reconstructing the life of Moses.
