I'll be watching/recording it on ABC too. It's amazing how good the remastered print is now, based on the ads for the broadcast. Smaller screen, but it'll be way good enough for me. I'm sure the staff-into-serpent trick will look even faker in higher definition, but the movie is basically one big, beautiful, glossy, overblown fake-out anyway. That's show biz (or is it just DeMille?). Now, over to you, Moses, you stubborn, splendid, adorable fool!

There was a major downpour of rain the other day and as I walked my dog I saw that a bridge over a creek was covered with a deep pool of water. I made the mistake of walking along a sidewalk on that bridge just as a car sped through it, throwing two huge waves of the pool high into the air, one of them completely drenching us. Those two waves had me thinking about Moses at the time, except he had had assistance to remain dry.

You sure it was a car and not a chariot?  (March isn't the time to get drenched, so sorry about that.)

anne baxter's jewelry was historically accurate.

:D

Too bad the place where Moses parted the waters were not.

Reed or Sea of Reeds NOT Red Sea,....Yam Suph (Hebrew: ים קנה)

One other thing to consider, the area we see today wouldn't be the same as back then due to geological changes.

The shallow depth of the Sea of Reeds makes it more likely the theory of wind set down.

There was a similar event witnessed at a lagoon in February 1882, when British Army Major-General Alexander Tulloch reported a gale of wind from the eastward set in and became so strong that I had to cease work.

The next morning, he said found the lake had totally disappeared...and the natives were walking about on the mud.

"God opens the sea with a blast of his nostrils."

from now on I'm gonna include Anne Baxter along with Gene Tierney and Hedy Lamarr as the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood history.

 

 

"thank you nip you adorable fool."

It's Gene in The Egyptian. And here's someone even more beautiful, from that film:

The Egyptian is definitely a movie Fathom Events should be bringing back to theaters. I haven't attended any of their events because there's no showing that isn't a 2-3 hour drive, but I'd find a way to get to see this one on a big screen.

I was taken to see The Egyptian when I was a small child. For years, I would occasionally dream about a man with an eye patch who removes the patch, takes a ruby out of his eye socket, to buy passage on a ship for himself and a child. Until I saw The Egyptian again, decades later, I didn't remember that my dream scene was from that great film. I also remembered the beautiful shades of blue in that film, without remembering which film it was.

My favorite epic! The last time I saw it, it was on the Fox film channel.

THE EGYPTIAN is a favorite of mine... because of VICTOR MATURE.  I think it is a bit trashy, and BELLA DARVI does just get creepier and creepier...LOVE IT!

Wonder how you'd feel about Bella if she were, say, about 45 feet taller, Nip???  ;)

Seems you like the softer look in a woman and unlike Bella's more chiseled features.

(...and regardless how tall the women might be)

There's a bit of a resemblance :

Yeah, I guess there's a little bit between Bella and Allison here, maybe.

However, I've always thought Bella looked a lot like Rita Gam, and also a bit like Viveca Lindfors.

(...with the three of them having those classic chiseled features)
