Trivia
Just as Charlton Heston's son Fraser played the infant Moses in The Ten Commandments (1956), Burt Lancaster's son Bill (as William) plays Moses as a young man.

Quotes
Aaron: [immediately after forging the golden calf at Mount Herob] ... Children of Israel, this which you see here... this is not God. The very idea is absurd! But it will *remind* you of God, each and every day that you pass by it.
Share this
Moses: [as he forces a searing punishment - melted gold from the calf - on the idolaters at Mount Herob] ... What you took unto the spirit, you must now take unto the flesh. What you kissed, you must now eat and drink.

Faq
Q
film location and date confusion
A
I actually worked on this film (production staff) in the Negev Desert in Israel in 1971. In the middle of the shoot another war broke out between Israel and the Palestinians. Everyone packed up and went home. They obviously continued production in Morroco. The original director, a well known brit apparently dropped out because of all the confusion. Lancaster was great, on and off the set.
