Heston and DeMille teamed again for the master showman's last film as director. Though a lot of the melodramatics are dated in this day and age, there is no denying the sumptuous film's enduring power and tremendous entertainment value. Heston is perfectly cast as Moses in this lengthy epic that also features Yul Brynner, Edward G. Robinson, John Derek and Anne Baxter. Supposedly, part of the reason Heston was cast as Moses was because he resembled Michelangelo's statue of the biblical figure. DeMille insisted Heston always stay in character on set. Heston received mostly positive reviews for his performance, but Time magazine stated that he was "ludicrously miscast."
