The prelude begins with a curtained stage, on which filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille appears and presents his final film. He does this by informing us that the Holy Bible, though chronicling much of Moses’s life, omits an entire thirty years. Before exiting, he explains that for his 1956 epic THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, a partial remake of his 1923 silent film bearing the same title, he will turn to historians to bridge that gap for the next three hours and thirty-nine minutes.
