Open Thread - Easter Tradition!

We watch it every year.

Note: Video contains an eff bomb from the burning bush.

IMDB:

Every year since 1973, the American TV network ABC airs [Cecile B. Demille's The Ten Commandments] on Easter, or Passover. In 1999, when for some reason ABC chose not to televise it, they received numerous irate phone calls from people accustomed to watching it every Easter than they have for any other film they have ever telecast.

We always say we're going to count the number of wigs Charleton Heston wears in the movie, and we always lose count.
