Sands of Oblivion (2007)
Dr. Alice Carter reads from correspondence from DeMille "...have met with the brotherhood. Brother Tristan advises me, bury everything. It has taken refuge in the antiquities and may never be found in time. It's the only way to be sure." [00:54:55]
"Freemasons." Dr. Jesse Carter whispers after brushing off an artifact from the film set of DeMille's Ten Commandments to reveal a square and compasses drawing. [00:57:40]
Elsewhere, Dr Carter is told the history of the film set by Nigel Barrington who notes one room was specially designed and commissioned.
Carter: "Commissioned? Who could possibly create such a tomb?
Barrington : "Who else but the original builders of the pyramids, that brotherhood of builders who created the most ancient cities including Solomon's Temple."
Carter: "I don't follow you."
Mark: "Freemasons."
Barrington : By the square, by the level, by the all-seeing eye. You're right, my friend."
Mark: "So, DeMille...."
Barrington: "Was a Freemason. Prince of Orange Lodge No. 16, New York. The rest, I'm afraid, is a mystery" [01:00:00]
At the end of the film a procession of black SUVs drive up. Barrington says:
"Ah, finally, the cavalry"
Carter: "Cavalry?"
Mark: " Freemasons."
Barrington: "My lodge brothers, from Hollywood Chapter. I think this time we'll try a little extra, extra concrete to be on the safe side. Even some lead."
