The Ten Commandments (1956) – Cecil B. DeMille as Narrator – IMDb
[first line and sentences at the beginning of the movie]
narrator: and god said let there be light, and there was light. and from this light, god created life on earth. and man was given dominion over all things on this earth and the power to choose between good and evil. but each one sought to do his own will because he did not know the light of God’s law. man took dominion over man, the conquered were made to serve the conqueror, the weak were made to serve the strong, and freedom disappeared from this world. so the Egyptians made the children of Israel serve with rigor, and their lives were embittered with harsh servitude. and his cry went up to god. and god heard them and threw into egypt, in the humble hut of amram and yochabel, the seed of a man in whose mind and heart the law and commandments of god would be written, a man alone against an empire.
