In 1955, DeMille began production for his remake of The Ten Commandments. Moore served as assistant director on the film. During filming, DeMille suffered a stroke. Although he was able to complete the film, it would be his last. In 1959, DeMille passed away. The Ten Commandments is credited with being one of the most popular films ever made.
