New York Opening of The Ten Commandments. Telegram sent between Cecil B. DeMille and Arnold Friberg:
Arnold: "It has been a long climb up Mt. Sinai. I'm glad you are with me at The summit, at least in spirit."
Mr. Demille: "It shall not have been important that I have worked for you… but it shall have been important that we worked together for the same Boss. It shall become meaningful, Arnold, as the years roll away and we see what we have done in watering parched human hope so that it may bloom again towards greater spiritual heights."
