Ten Commandments

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.

Other mistake: When Moses notices the burning bush, he tells Joshua that it is a bush on fire, but not burning. It's too far away for him to see that it's not burning.

Question: As Rameses is getting dressed by his servants, Nefretiri stops one servant and takes a sword from him. The shot then cuts to Rameses getting dressed and then Nefretiri comes to give him the sword. What exactly did she do with it: did she stab her dead son (who is placed on that statue), or did she do something else?

Answer: She gave the sword to Ramses and told him to bring it back with Moses' blood on it.

Answer: I have always thought she stabbed her dead son. It's obvious she does something with it other than just give it to Rameses.

She doesn't do anything other than give him the sword. She's trying to dramatically convince Ramses to kill Moses. In countless stories, one character will tell another character to kill someone while handing them a weapon.

Answer: She didn't do anything with it. She took the sword so she could help dress her husband herself.
