"About 30 years ago, I became a born-again Christian," Paget, 73, told us from her Houston home.  

"I think my evangelical work was foreshadowed when Cecil B. DeMille chose me for The Ten Commandments and said, ' I feel the hand of God has been on you.'"

-Parade Magazine; Feb. 25, 2007 ________________

Cecil B. DeMille's

The Ten Commandments

Photo: Charlton Heston as Moses.  For sheer pageantry and spectacle, few motion pictures can claim to equal the splendor of Cecil B. DeMille's 1956 remake of his epic The Ten Commandments.  Filmed in Egypt and the Sinai with one of the biggest sets ever constructed for a motion picture, this version tells the story of the life of Moses (Charlton Heston), once favored in the Pharaoh's (Yul Brynner) household, who turned his back on a privileged life to lead his people to freedom. 

 With a rare on-screen introduction by Cecil B. DeMille himself, this unforgettable movie experience is enhanced by a Dolby surround stereo soundtrack.
