Cue Sheet and Suggestions, for
Presentation of Cecil B. DeMille's
"THE TEN COMMANDMENTS"
|"THE TEN COMMANDMENTS" is a picture of great importance and
deserves the same showmanship and technical care in theatre presentation
that it received in its production and roadshow engagements.|
Running time is three hours and 41 minutes, with the
intermission title coming at the end of the seventh reel, two hours and
13 minutes from the beginning. The entire picture consists of twelve
An overture has not been included in the print, and we suggest
that music from the Dot sound track album be played prior to the
performance. The picture opens with a red curtain through which Mr.
DeMille enters. He gives a brief introduction which runs two minutes and
23 seconds and the picture title follows.
Intermission overture music has not been included on the sound
track. The Dot sound track album music should commence about three
minutes before the time established for the beginning of the, second
half of the picture to start the audience returning to their seats.
Exit music has not been provided on film and the Dot sound
track album can be employed here again. It should be started when the
house lights are brought up.
