"THE TEN COMMANDMENTS" (1956) Review

After a mixed reaction to the darker tones of 1984's "INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM", George Lucas and Steven Spielberg decided to compensate by ending what was then planned their Indiana Jones trilogy with a movie lighter in tone.

Several years ago, I came across an old website about Wiccan practices and meanings.
