I'm trying to find an image for the Pillar of Fire discussed in Exodus
13:21, the Israelites in the Desert.  I think it was also shown in the
movie, "The Ten Commandments".

Excellent answer.  I'm surprised there aren't more images for this
topic.  I found all but two on my own.  One of those two was exactly
what I needed so thank you.

The pillar of cloud and fire was one pillar.[Exodus 13;21] guiding the
Israelites out of Egypt. Ex.14;24 says the pillar changed from cloud
in the day to fire at night, and represented the presence of the
Israelites God, Jehovah. [ his name], When the Egyptians pursued them,
the pillar moved to the rear, perhaps spreading like a wall [ Psalm
105;38 & 39]. It caused darkness on the Egyptian side and light on the
Israelite side [Exodus 14; 19,20] When the Tabernacle was erected, the
pillar was above it, indicating that their God was present, and He
spoke out of it [ Numbers 14;14 , 12;15 & Psalm 99;7] the last menton
of the pillar was when the Israelites entered the "Promised Land"
[Deteronomy 31;15] Once they had settled, it was not needed any more.
It had served God`s purpose.
