It’s been called the most frightening film ever made. That’s because there is no razor-toothed monster, giant bug-eyed alien or special effects extravaganza as terrifying as a threat coming from the person you thought you knew and trusted. Were the film’s emotionless pod people supposed to represent Communists or McCarthyite conformists? Either way, they reflect the obsessions of the Cold War. Based on a novella by Jack Finney, “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” has been remade three times (so far), each time resonating with the deepest fears of its era.
Behind the Scenes With Charlton Heston and “The Ten Commandments”

“The Ten Commandments” is coming back to theaters for two days only, March 20 and 23, 2016, in more than 650 cinemas nationwide. Truly, this is a film that must be seen on the big screen to experience the epic scope and grand vision of director Cecil B. DeMille and the towering performance of Charlton Heston as Moses. It was selected by movie fans as the greatest Biblical movie of all time in a survey by MovieTickets.com.
We are honored to be able to present these rare behind-the-scenes photos from the making of the film.
I look forward to Turner Classic Movies’ 31 Days of Oscar every year in the month before the Oscar telecast. It is so much fun to see the nominees and winners from past years, not just for the big acting, directing, and screenplay awards but also the nominees and winners for costume design, cinematography, editing, and more.
And they’ve made it even more special this year! This will be a lot of fun for movie nerds like me. Each movie will have a connection with the one that follows it by an actor in common. It will be a lot of fun to follow along and trace the careers of some of our favorite performers.
