*** Actually kind of old-fashioned for 1956, as more films were being made with naturalistic acting. However, [=DeMille=] was a Victorian born and bred, and conceived this picture as a series of theatrical set pieces, called ''tableaux''. You can almost see the curtain fall at the close of each scene. And so the actors spoke that way too.

** The movie is about godly people seeking freedom from a pagan dictator. In the introduction (theatrical and DVD/Blu-ray releases only), De Mille discusses the central theme of the film as about whether men are free individuals or the property of the state. Remember [[ColdWar the era this film was produced in]], and consider its possible hidden meanings.
