Scott Eyman: Because it's a handcrafted movie with a very specific political, moral, and social message, there is no comparison in terms of the emotional and artistic impact.
Cecilia DeMille Presley: The movie is timeless because the story is timeless. Whether you are religious or not religious, it doesn't make any difference. The story is a real story about an incredible man.
Scott Eyman: "The Ten Commandments" is the culmination of DeMille. It's the movie he'd been moving slowly towards throughout his career.
Cecilia DeMille Presley: One of the most important things to DeMille was his audience; he respected them.
James D'Arc: In so many ways, Cecil B. DeMille was "the real McCoy" and probably the best representative and best champion of the motion picture industry that there was.
Lisa Mitchell: He was making Bible stories real. He was taking my Sunday School lessons and putting faces and emotions to them.
Charlton Heston: Mr. DeMille - he was an extraordinary man to work for.
Katherine Orrison: DeMille used to say, "This is a movie that is going to live beyond me and you and everyone else. This is a movie that is going to be seen all over the world, and it's universal."
