Longtime film historian Bruce Crawford has announced that his 38th Salute to Classic Cinema will feature a 60th Anniversary presentation of Cecil B. DeMilles’ classic epic “The Ten Commandments.” The event will be held at the Joslyn Art Museum’s Witherspoon Hall Theatre on Friday, May 27, at 2200 Dodge Street in Omaha, Nebraska. The show begins at 7:00 p.m.
The event will also feature two special guests. Miss Holly Heston, the daughter of the film’s star Charlton Heston, will be appearing as will Miss Kathy Garver, who portrayed the young Rachel in the film. Fans may also remember Ms. Garver for her role of “Cissy” in the television comedy “Family Affair.” In addition, artist Nicolosi has designed a United States Post Office Commemorative Envelope honoring the film, as well as Mr. Heston and Mr. DeMille, that will be unveiled at the event.
Tickets for the event are $23.00 and are available at the customer service counter at all Omaha Hy Vee stores. Proceeds will go to the Omaha Parks Foundation. For more information you can call (402) 618-2124 or visit www.omahafilmevent.com
