  • Third film in Cecil B. DeMille's biblical trilogy, following Ten Commandments, The (1923) and King of Kings, The (1927).
  • Originally released as a 124 minute feature. After the Hays Code was instituted, some of the more "sinful" scenes were cut for the film's re-release in 1944.
  • The milk bath scene took a whole week to film. Every time Claudette Colbert got out of the pool, director Cecil B. DeMille tried to catch a glimpse of her in the nude. A crew member always threw a towel over Miss Colbert beforehand, so DeMille never got a good look at his actress.
