On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of Cecil B. DeMille's "The Ten Commandments" (1923), Micky Moore traveled with his brother Pat Moore to the Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes in California. Archaeologists were excavating the recently exposed set of the film, which had been buried at the location for decades. Pat Moore had played the role of the Pharaoh's son. Filmmaker Peter Brosnan (center) produced a documentary on the site called "The Lost City of Cecil B. DeMille." On reverse: "Guadalupe Dunes.
