The ABC television network has been showing The Ten Commandments for as long as I can remember; at least back until the 1970's. Until lately, they had always shown it on the night of Easter. It seems like the last couple years, they took to showing it on the week before Easter. Well, I'm glad to say that I tuned in last night, at 6 p.m. on Easter night and there was the opening credits for The Ten Commandments starting once again. They always started showing it at 6 p.m. because it was so long. It's nice to have it back where it belongs! For my ninth annual post, I decided to show a screen capture, really a picture I took of the tv screen, from their broadcast in 1984, which I had videotaped. It uses the above scene and ABC used it when going to a commercial break:
This year's post is a day late because we had a huge thunderstorm hit us Thursday night and it knocked out my internet until just this Monday afternoon. I had intended to post it Friday or Saturday, but here it is at last. I hope you enjoyed the movie last night, I know I sure did!
