Happy Birthday to Kamala Harris

In these stressed-out times, I’d like to try and put a smile on a few readers’ faces.
Thought I would provide a short clip from the TEN COMMANDMENTS (1956) which contains my ex-wife’s Kiyo’s “big moment” where she gets to share the big screen with Yul Brynner (Pharoh) and Charlton Heston (Moses) for her 90 seconds of fame.
You decide, was she ready for her closeup?  Kiyo is the “high priestess” in white holding a tray and kneeling at Pharoah’s feet she hands him the urn to try and change Moses’  water into blood trick back to water.
But, sadly no go. Pharoah drops the urn and Kiyo recoils in horror as Moses tells them he’s cutting off their water for seven days.

 I would meet Kiyo five years later at a “Hollywood Party” in Laurel Canyon while home on leave from the Navy and still a minor and we would elope to Twin Falls, Idaho in 1962. (The closest state where I could marry her in secret without my mother’s permission.)
