Ansel Adams & John Muir Book Collection can be yours …

A very generous friend donated several books of Adams’ photography for the lending library at the Hospitality Kitchen on Skid Row, two books on John Muir and one other on Baja California. However, they are coffee table books for the most part and quite heavy. So we thought to ask if anyone would like to send an offering for the collection and we will then use that donation to purchase books in English and Spanish for the lending library. If you are interested, please send an email to RosePacatte@gmail.com. We would like these to go as a group to save on postage, but we are grateful for your offer.

For links to the books on Amazon, for descriptions, see the list here. These are all used books.

10 Commandments re-released (the ones by De Mille) for 55th anniversary with new features

 

Paramount released the 55th anniversary edition of “The Ten Commandments” in DVD and Blu-ray today. For my capsule review click here and scroll down.

Did you know that Charlton Heston’s son Fraser played the baby Moses? Son Fraser narrates the new documentary included in the new release – and says he was born just in time to play this key role!

Here’s an interview with Fraser by James Plath Fraser Heston talks about the making of The Ten Commandments

As one of the best movies ever made, if this film is not in your DVD collection, it would make a nice gift for the family.

What I enjoyed was learning how much of the film was shot on location in Egypt – I thought it was all on a sound stage or in the Mojave.
