Characteristically elephantine Big Top epic from DeMille, thumped across with a winning brashness and garnering the veteran showman his first Best Picture Oscar. Heston crosses his Moses-to-be with Noah as he leads his 'children' and menagerie cross-country, while Stewart's killer-on-the-lam does a wonderfully affecting 'tears of a clown' number in the true, tacky circus tradition of sawdust, spectacle and sentiment.
