I'm so excited! The Ten Commandments is on (and I can watch KU basketball on the commercials). I've seen this movie every year it's been broadcast (except last year when I was devastated to miss it). What could be better than Yul Brenner in a skirt? (Moses shmoses, Ramses is hot!) Charlton Heston as a Jewish savior? Vincent Price as an Egyptian and Edward G. Robinson has a Hebrew overseer? And Yvonne De Carlo (Mrs. Munster herself!) as an innocent shepherd girl? Nothing! Except this line that Moses delivers to Nefretiri after he finds out he's really a Hebrew and goes to work in the mud pits with the slaves: "If my people reek, it's with the stench of injustice."
The best line ever spoken on film. Disagree? Tell me a better line. And by better, I mean more ridiculously campily wonderfully sublime than that.
Happy Easter (and Rock Chalk Jayhawk) y'all! So let it be written, so let it be done.
