By the Gods!

Mel Brooks as Moses with the short lived 15 Commandments from HISTORY OF THE WORLD PART 1 (1981)

A good spoof of the the creation of the ten commandments. The movie is a set of brief comedy scenes or skits spoofing history. Oddly enough, this kind of comedy is popular with the PEPLUM genre, dating back all the way to ADAMO ED EVA (1949), a 'battle of the sexes' Italian comedy as seen through history.
I have to get the Blu-ray of this. Part 2 was never made.
