The Ten Commandments (1956) Poster

Douglass Dumbrille: Jannes


  • Rameses : [to Nefretiri]  Did you lose your head, my sweet?

    Sethi : [to Rameses]  I sent you to Goshen to bring me the head of the jackal who would free the slaves. Where is it?

    Rameses : The slaves do not need a deliver now. They have Moses.

    Nefretiri : Is that a riddle?

    Rameses : [to Sethi]  He gives them the priests' grain and one day in seven to rest. They call it "The Day of Moses."

    [as if it is a holiday] 

    Jannes : This man makes himself a god.

    Nefretiri : I prefer him as a man.

    Rameses : You would prefer him as Pharaoh.

    Nefretiri : Are you afraid of Moses?

    Rameses : Yes, because now he holds Ethiopia in his left hand, Goshen in right, and you, my Pharaoh, are in-between them.

    Sethi : Do you imply that he would raise the slaves against me? I've been his father.

    Jannes : Ambition knows no father.

    Nefretiri : Moses could no more betray you than I could, Sethi.

    Sethi : He can tell me that when he arrives.

    Rameses : He will not be here, my father.

    Sethi : What? I sent for both of you.

    Rameses : His word is that he cannot attend you, being pressed by other matters.

    Sethi : [to Nefretiri]  Did you hear that? Other matters?

    [Sethi spoke as in an a shout of anger, or shock] 

    Sethi : [Sethi then gets up and clangs a gong, for an Egyptian servant, immediately a servent appears]  My escort. I will ride with you, my son, to see what rears itself in Goshen... a city or treason.
