. . .I also really like The Prince of Egypt, a surprisingly intelligent and mature adaptation of the story of the Exodus. It particularly impresses me with the bold creative decision to make Pharaoh a sympathetic character.
The 1970s TV miniseries Moses the Lawgiver, starring Burt Lancaster, was also a fairly intelligent dramatization of the story of Moses and the Exodus, taking a historic and anthropological approach to the material and downplaying the supernatural aspects. (I'm tempted to say it wasn't run of De Mille, but that would be too easy. )
