Summary
Filmed in Egypt and the Sinai with one of the biggest sets ever constructed for a motion picture, this version tells the story of the life of Moses. Once favored in the Pharaoh's bousehold, Moses turned his back on a privileged life to lead his people to freedom. Now celebrating its 55th anniversary, this film has been fully restored
