Audio problem: After the Red Sea parts, and almost all of the Hebrews are across the dry expanse, the pillar of fire holding Pharaoh back disappears, and the chariots head into the expanse themselves to pursue the Hebrews. A very young Hebrew boy at the rear of the masses says 'Look, Grandpa! Pharaoh and his men are coming!' and points at them with his free hand. Watch his mouth: the child is merely moving his lower jaw up and down. Apparently the child actor was too young to learn any lines so the producers improvised.
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Moses takes the first journey up Mt. Sinai for his very first view of the burning bush, the walking scene shot has Charlton Heston following the camera as the camera dolly's backwards towards the bush. As Heston and the camera movement comes to a halt, you can see two long tire tracks in the sand created by the dolly truck that housed the camera and cameraman.
