The Ten Commandments w/ Meghan Fitzmartin

In the 1950s, young, basically-blacklisted composer Elmer Bernstein got a remarkable offer from aging master director Cecil B. DeMille. DeMille was determined to retell the story of Moses on a scale unheard-of in Hollywood and with his former composer Victor Young sick and dying, Bernstein was up for the job. DeMille asked him if he could do for film music what Puccini did for opera. Bernstein said he didn't know, but he would love to try. Join Meghan Fitzmartin (Supernatural, DC Comics: Robin) and Chris as they talk about how The Ten Commandments took over Meghan's childhood, which of the film's fifteen themes are most memorable, and much, much more.
