Alumni Collaborations: 'The Ten Commandments'

Every week we like to look back at one of our most recognizable and celebrated alumni collaborations in history.


This week we want to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the amazing film "The Ten Commandments" directed by Cecil B. DeMille (class of 1900), starring Edward G. Robinson (Class of 1913) and Nina Foch (Class of 1942). It was nominated for 7 Academy Awards and is still shown on Network television every year during the Easter/Passover season.

Fun fact: Nina Foch was one year younger than her 31-year-old on-screen son. Also, Cecil B. DeMille had a heart attack on set but returned only two days later.
