Larry Cohen on

The Ten Commandments

Released 1956
Distributor Paramount

Our 600th trailer is Epic in every way. Larry manages to find 10 MINUTES of stuff to say about this‚ extended promo for‚ C.B. DeMille’s last‚ religious spectacle– which isn’t really‚ so much about the Bible as it is about Anne Baxter’s breasts.‚ ‚ Seems like every ten minutes somebody’s wailing “Oh Moses, Moses, Moses…”! Paramount’s fabulous new Blu-ray captures the textures and colors of this enduring blockbuster better than anything since its original VistaVision release.

[Ed. Sadly, this trailer has been lost to the sands of time — and website layout changes.]
