This movie always airs on ABC and a few times in the past…we have gone to Vigil Mass (its rare, but sometimes my parents and I go to Vigil Mass instead of the Sunday Morning Mass) and after not getting home until either the parting of the red sea or just before the Ten commandments are handed down…I finally bought the DVD set a few years ago, either in 2007 or 2008…not long before Charlton Heston died.
I usually watch the movie duirng Holy Week and then this past week since I couldn’t eat anything after my late supper after I got back from Good friday service, I started watching it again. I listen to the audio commentary sometimes, too (on the DVD).
If this movie were made now, the parting of the red sea would be done on computer. For 55 years old, this movie has stood the test of time. It was recently released on Blu Ray…I think I’ll get that one next year.
