After hearing the story of Moses, the sons of a devout Christian mother go their own ways, while the atheist brother's breaking of the Ten Commandments leads to tragedy.
Midway through production the film ran out of money and Cecil B. DeMille's original backers pulled out. The production was saved when DeMille called in a personal favor from his friend Amadeo Giannini, one of the founders of Bank of America. Giannini's $500,000 investment allowed the production to continue without stopping.

When the Red Sea is parting, it's clear that the filmed footage was played in reverse.
