Sixth Annual Ten Commandments Post - Bom Bom Baaa

Guess what time of year it is again? Yep, it's time when I blog about my love affair with the motion picture "The Ten Commandments." You'll all have read how it's my favorite movie and that I saw it for the first time on the big screen in 1966, during it's ten-year re-release. Well, it's time to relive the sheer extremity of it again by watching it on Sunday night, Easter night. I know, ABC-TV has taken to showing it of late on Saturday night instead of Sunday nights like it used to, but I've got that covered. I have the best copy, the one released on VHS several years back, that even has scenes the 50th Anniversary Edition DVD does not have. (Yes, I have the DVD as well.) I'll watch it on Sunday night, just like I've done for as long as I can remember and even though I may watch it by myself this year, it will still be special for me. There's just something about that movie that keeps me enthralled, year after year after year.

So, join me in a repeat viewing one more time and enjoy this opening title screen once more which gets it all off to a roaring bang - bom bom baaa! So let it be written, so let it be watched.
