Cecil B. DeMille’s magnum opus “The Ten Commandments” was released in 1956, and the world has cringed ever since. Join JewishBoston as Miriam, Ashley, Dan and Jesse try to make sense of Charlton Heston’s continuity beard, Yul Brynner’s polyester aesthetic, the predictably awful portrayal of female characters and the myriad perplexing additions to the plot that were definitely not from the Torah. Come for the bad special effects, stay for the remarkable wigs!

Edited by Jesse Ulrich, with music by Shawn Fogel.
