New Yummy Combs® Provide Dogs with Dental Flossing and an Impressive Dose
of Nutrition All in One Chew
Combination of patented honeycomb design and nutritious ingredients re-shape the dog
treat category
Kansas City (April 28, 2020) — Cleaning a dog’s teeth has never been easier, safer and
more nutritious, thanks to a unique, great tasting dental chew launching this month at
PetSmart stores nationwide.
Co-created by thought leaders in veterinary and food science, Yummy Combs® infuse a
unique shape with 44 percent protein and a wealth of essential vitamins and minerals to
not only promote canine oral care but also boost energy, joint health, mobility and total
wellness.
“Yummy Combs are a new plateau in dog treats,” says Joe Roetheli, serial pet product
entrepreneur and co-inventor of Yummy Combs. He and his wife, Judy, co-founded
Pet’s Pet’s Best Life, a company dedicated to improving pet health and nutrition, which
is launching Yummy Combs as its first product.
“The functional, innovative shape is different by design to address serious oral health
and safety issues including the number one disease in dogs — periodontal disease —
as well as gulping. Plus, Yummy Combs contain a complete and balanced formula of ingredients
including much more protein than conventional treats. Yummy Combs are different
from your run-of-the mill pet treats inside and outside.”
A breakthrough in canine oral care
Yummy Combs have a patented six-sided perimeter filled with small hexagonal pockets.
This patented design fosters teeth flossing to the gum line — deterring gingivitis and
periodontal disease — while the hard-inner hexagonal walls help scrape and clean
teeth. The thin walls of Yummy Combs allow dogs to break down the chew, speeding
solubility and digestion, and the wide design helps deter gulping. Yummy Combs come
in five sizes to align with your dog’s weight classification.
“It is very important to feed the proper size treat for your dog’s weight,” says Roetheli.
“Our team remains very conscious of safety in developing the shape and five sizes of
Yummy Combs.”
Although regular visits to the veterinarian remain the gold standard for the assessment
and treatment of canine dental issues, Yummy Combs were conceived to provide a safe
means for chipping away at the buildup of tartar and plaque on dogs’ teeth, precursors
to gingivitis and periodontal disease.
Veterinarians with clinical expertise in canine dentistry have endorsed the novel shape
and its benefits. According to Dr. Jan Bellows, past president of the American Veterinary
Dental College, the Veterinary Dental Forum and the Foundation for Veterinary
Dentistry, “Yummy Combs have a high probability of cleaning above and below the gum
lines where the dangerous periodontal disease gets its start. This is certainly a product
worthy of consideration.”
A nutritional powerhouse
In addition to their uniquely functional shape, Yummy Combs are packed with nutrition.
Unlike many conventional treats which have minimal protein content, Yummy Combs
are made of a 44 percent protein-rich recipe, primarily comprised of chicken and containing
all amino acids. They also contain 12 ingredients for wellness, including dried
honey and salmon oil, with each vitamin and mineral scientifically chosen to promote
good health.
The thin walled construction of Yummy Combs allows production at low temperatures
ensuring that the active ingredients in the formula are not compromised during the manufacturing
process. No artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, gluten or GMO’s are included
in the Yummy Combs formula.
Available nationwide
Yummy Combs are launching in PetSmart stores across the country on May 1st. 12
ounce cartons and singles are available in five sizes for extra small to extra big dogs.
Each Yummy Comb is individually foil wrapped to ensure freshness, deter contamination,
and provide convenience in carrying the chew in your purse or pocket.

NEW BOOK ‘ANIMALKIND’ EXPLORES AWE-INSPIRING FACTS ABOUT ANIMALS’ EMOTIONAL LIVES AND REVOLUTIONARY NEW WAYS TO SHOW COMPASSION

 

PETA Founder Ingrid Newkirk discusses her latest book and the remarkable advancements in our society’s awareness about animals over the years

 

AVAILABLE FOR INTERVIEW:

INGRID NEWKIRK, author and PETA founder

BACKGROUND:

Since Ingrid Newkirk founded PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) 40 years ago, it has become an unstoppable force and the largest animal rights organization in the world. Now, Ingrid has published, along with bestselling author Gene Stone, ANIMALKIND, an exploration of the richness of animal lives, their talents, emotions, and intelligence, and the many exciting ways all of us can act to prevent harm to animals. This latest book highlights some of the wonders of animal life and offers tools for living kindly toward our neighbors on our shared planet.

Ingrid Newkirk  discusses in her latest book, share fun animal facts, and explore exciting new tools that allow humans to create a better world for animals—such as substituting apple or grape leather for animal hide, synthetic frog models to replace the real ones used for years in school classrooms, advances in meat and dairy tastes-a-likes and plant-base nutrition, and virtual reality animal tours that replace circus shows.

 

DID YOU KNOW THESE FUN ANIMAL FACTS?

●       Birds have been found to be far more devoted to their romantic partners than humans. While the divorce rate in the U.S. is around 40 to 45 percent, swans, for instance, have a 95 percent rate of staying together for a lifetime.

●       Oinks, grunts, and squeals aren’t just arbitrary noises made by pigs. More than twenty of these sounds have been identified with specific circumstances, from wooing mates to expressing distress and joy.

●       Cows communicate with each other using subtle changes in facial expression; rhinos use a breath language; and frogs have learned to combat street noise by using drain pipes to amplify their calls.

●       Chickens form complex pecking orders in which each bird not only understands her ranking, but can recall the faces and ranks of more than one hundred other birds.

Our Story

My mother, Pearl, sparked my life-long commitment to protect our Planet Earth. Among all of Earth’s natural beauties, water has always enchanted me the most. Betsy and I live with our daughter, Pearl, on a beautiful pond. Looking out our living room window, I witnessed the environmental damage up close. As I investigated the problem on our little pond, it became clear that lawns (and lawn care) were a primary culprit. The deeper I dug, the more compelling case for change became. So, I set out on an eight year journey to save our pond and in the process found a solution to save our waters and save you money, too!

We Americans love our lawns but we are addicted to high maintenance lawn care. Protecting our waters depends critically on changing how we care for our lawns. With input from independent grass seed scientists, I tested thousands of seed mixes to create a truly low maintenance, patent-pending solution. Once established, Pearl’s Premium rarely, or never, needs watering; grows very slowly and thrives without chemicals. The secret: roots that grow very deep, tapping into naturally-occurring moisture and nutrients to produce a healthy, barefoot soft lawn.

I pledge that Pearl’s Premium will transform your lawn – as it has thousands of lawns. I encourage you to take the Pearl’s Premium pledge to save time, money, water and our Earth!

Jackson Madnick

Founder

An organic organic approach to lawn care is over-due for so many reasons:

  • Lawns are depleting our groundwater supplies:  Some estimates indicate that lawn care uses 50% of our county’s potable water. Lawn irrigation, particularly in-ground watering systems, increase summer water use to levels three to five times higher than winter water use. Use of nitrogen-rich chemical fertilizers and fast-growing shallow-rooted grasses exacerbates the problem. Water shortages from your neighbors lawn care lead to increased water prices for everyone, water bans and enforced conservation.  Many of the non-native lawn seeds from Europe or Kentucky, with very shallow roots, are naturally adapted to environments that are wetter than ours.  In New England, and most of North America, these foreign, shallow root, high maintenance grasses leads to a pattern of frequent watering and frequent mowing, particularly if chemical fertilizer is used.
  • Wasting energy and adding to greenhouse gases:  Watering lawns with water that is filtered for human consumption and pumped to our homes wastes huge amounts of energy. Producing commercial fertilizers from petroleum is energy intensive, and costs are rising as oil prices rise. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, running a typical lawn mower for an hour is eleven times more polluting than running a mid-size car full of people and luggage for an hour. So, the energy-intensive fertilizer, water from the town and lawn mower pollution in a standard lawn greatly increases your family's carbon foot print.
  • Run off and unnecessary health risks: A stagering amount of chemicals are used every year on lawns. Between 50% and 80% of lawn care chemicals run off lawns with the rain and into storm drains, ending up in the watershed or local ponds, causing algal blooms and feeding the invasive weeds out of control. Again, the majority of lawn chemicals is feeding the invasive weeds in our ponds, not on your lawn! Then, local communities use expensive herbicides to get rid of the invasive weeds in the ponds and low levels of both the fertilizer, pesticides and the herbicide may end up in your drinking water.  Use of pesticides and fertilizer in urban and suburban communities contributes significantly to contamination of our drinking water and other surface water supplies.  This also increases health risks to children, pets and the elderly and increases school department budgets from learning and behavioral disorders caused by the lawn care chemicals. So, chemicals put on your lawn impact the whole community in many ways, including finances, clean up, invasive weeds and health.  
  • What ends up in our homes affects children, animals and others: Lawn care chemicals and pesticides get carried indoors into homes on shoes, paws and air currents. Once inside, pesticides linger in carpets, dust, on toys and in the air we breathe. These chemicals normally break down outside over time with sunlight. However, away from sunlight and water, pesticides persist for many months, resulting in longer exposure to these chemicals indoors. According to health experts at the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection prolonged exposure to the pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers in lawn care chemicals is responsible for an alarming increase in the risk of learning and behavioral disorders in children and increased risk in adults for asthma, Parkinsons's disease, cancer and a number of other ailments. The increased health risks are much higher for children, the elderly and our pets. According to Dr. Margo Roman, a veterinary expert, "50 years ago, only 5% of dogs got cancer. Today, over 46% of dogs get cancer, and there is evidence suggesting this alarming rate is caused by the widespread use of lawn care fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides." In response to these concerns, "a new era in pesticide use has begun in Quebec with the banning of many domestic products that have chemicals considered toxic to humans and the environment." Read the report from the Organic Consumers Association.

Purchase and use Organic Fertilizers and other organic lawn products.

KRISTINE W UNLEASHES HER “ISSUES”
Billboard Magazine’s “Dance Music Artist of the Decade” Releases
Episode One of Her Three Part “Issues” Album, “Love and Lies”
Kristine W returns to the dance floor with Love and Lies, the first part of her three-episode
Issues double-album that includes the #1 single “Stars” and her brand new single,
“Barracuda”. Being distributed globally through The Orchard, all eight songs on Issues
Episode 1: Love and Lies deal with love in its complexities: the deception from others as
well as the lies we tell ourselves. Kristine W’s Issues Episode 1: Love and Lies album is
available now at https://orcd.co/episodeoneloveandlies.
“This album is all about real songs and stories,” explains Kristine W. “They tell tales of
true experiences from my life. Nothing is held back because my ultimate hope is that
these songs help others confront their own issues head on.”
Kristine’s previously released single, “Just a Lie,” depicted her painful experience with
divorce. In “Barracuda,” a remake of the classic rock track first released by Heart, Kristine
W takes aim at a record industry that hasn’t always been fair to her. “The song fit perfectly
with the "Keeping It Real” vibe of the Issues Episode 1: Love and Lies album,” she says.
“Growing up In Washington (state), we were all immersed in rock,” Kristine W continues.
“Heart, in particular, were super heroes to all of us because they were global rock stars
that gave us young aspiring musicians hope that we could make it big somehow too.”
The original “Barracuda” was written as a testament to Heart's anger towards the music
industry. Believing in that old adage of ‘any publicity is good publicity’, the band’s label
issued press releases filled with fake stories to create any kind of buzz about the band in
order to sell records. Many were unflattering and even detrimental to the band’s longterm
success and they eventually led to the band splitting from the label.


“Barracuda” presented a few challenges for Kristine. The biggest being matching Ann
Wilson’s incredible vocals. Wilson was 18 when she recorded the single, allowing her to
hit notes in the stratosphere. “I told my engineer I didn't want to cover ‘Barracuda’
unless I could sing it in the original key,” Kristine W explains. “He looked at me like I
was nuts but three sessions later, I nailed it.”
Kristine and her producer, John Keenan, manage to reframe the single, adding a bit of
dance influence into the production while keeping its original magic.
Kristine W hails from Pasco, Washington. After winning titles as Miss Tri-Cities and Miss
Washington and placing first in the talent competition at the Miss America pageant, she
went on to pursue her educational and musical dreams in Las Vegas. There, she found
success headlining her own show at the Las Vegas Hilton, winning several 'Las Vegas
Entertainer of the Year' awards and being officially sanctioned as the entertainer who
performed more live shows at the Las Vegas Hilton than any other performer in its history,
including Elvis. The award led to June 28th being officially sanctioned Kristine W day in
the state of Nevada.
She began recording pop and dance tracks in 1994. Her first track, “Feel What You
Want” reached #1 and since then, Kristine W has had a steady flow of chart toppers.
“Stars,” the first release off Issues Episode 1: Love and Lies, was her 17th Billboard #1.
She now ties Mariah Carey for the sixth-most No. 1s since the chart’s August 28, 1976,
inception. Madonna leads the chart with 46.
The three episodes of Issues are intended to take listeners on a journey, with songs
relating to the subject of each episode. Following Issues Episode 1: Love and Lies, Issues
Episode 2: Struggles will deal with life’s battles including those associated with
relationships, work, time management and self-esteem. Then, Issues Episode 3:
Redemption will celebrate life's small victories. All thirty tracks of Issues will be released
as a double album in early 2021.
The producers who lend their talent to Issues Episode 1: Love and Lies read like a
veritable who’s who of today’s top hitmakers. Hans W. Mallon from Holland, best known
for his work with Tiesto, shines with his productions of “Wind In the Trees”, “Can’t take
No More" and "Whites Girls.” Joey Moskowitz, responsible for creating some of the
biggest US house anthems of the last two decades, masterfully reinvents Kristine's #1
smash "Land Of The Living." London superstar FREEJAK hits gold again with his
radiating production of Kristine’s “Stars.” Jesper Kettenis and Phill Wellz (both from
Amsterdam) also appear on the album.
“I still have my issues,” Kristine admits, “but I’m not obsessing over the small things like
I use to do, especially when it comes to my music. Unlike the Wilson sisters in the 70s, I
feel very blessed to have a great team of talented people working with me on Issues
Episode 1: Love and Lies. We are a family with lots of music coming out this year and so
much to be grateful for.”
Kristine W’s Issues Episode 1: Love and Lies album is available now on all digital retailers
via Kristine’s own imprint, Fly Again Music Productions. Fly Again Music is a diversified
entertainment company devoted to producing, uncovering and revitalizing the very best
of dance, pop and jazz culture. For more information on Kristine W and her music, visit

ABOUT KRISTINE W
Named by Billboard Magazine as the #8 Greatest Dance Artist of All Time and the #3 greatest
from the Last Decade (trailing only Madonna and Beyoncé), Kristine W has proven herself a
lasting talent. Through nearly twenty-five years in music, she has consistency delivered songs
that touch hearts and souls and compel bodies to find the mighty groove out on the dance
floor. With “Stars,” Kristine’s 17th #1 single, she now ties Mariah Carey for the sixth-most
Billboard #1 dance hits. The song was also included on Billboard’s "Best 100 Dance Songs of
2018,” coming in at #25, next to Ariana Grande and U2: https://www.billboard.com/charts/
year-end/2018/dance-club-songs.
In addition, Kristine recently made waves in the cabaret circuit, starring alongside her longtime
friend, the Emmy-Award winning TV personality, style expert, fashion designer and New York
Times best-selling author, Carson Kressley. Together, the dynamic duo toured the USA,
presenting lovely evenings of comedy and jazz music classics in a live stage show called
Straight Up with a Twist.
Kristine W has made a career by focusing on the art and profession of being a singer,
songwriter and musician. She enjoys a grassroots mutual affection with fans who revere her
voice, appreciate how the aspects of life and emotions she sings about echo their own feelings
and experiences.
So how did a ranch-raised small-town girl from rural Washington State end up as “the most
soulful vocalist in dance music, period,” according to All Music Guide? Kristine credits Donna
Summer for instilling the love of dance into her.
“She had that big gorgeous voice,” says Kristine of the late disco music pioneer and superstar.
“Her voice sounded almost like gospel to me. It was dance with the big background vocals
and the layered harmonies. She was everything I would aspire to.”
Kristine’s mother was also an entertainer. She showed Kristine that a singing career was
possible. “Mom did it because my Dad passed away when we were babies and it was a matter
of survival. Singing and performing was how she was able to keep food on the table for us,”
Kristine explains.
Her maternal grandmother, who helped raise Kristine and her four siblings, was a classical
violinist who was struck by lightning (“One of the few people to survive that,” Kristine notes).
The bolt threw her arms out of their shoulder sockets. After they were wired back in place, she
could no longer play the violin, so she taught herself how to play the guitar set in her lap. “It
just showed me the power of music because she continued to be musical and figured out ways
to adapt to her situation. She was an amazing woman.”
Kristine’s paternal grandfather was a rancher and competitive horseman. “He was like John
Wayne.” Her late father was a rodeo champion and country music singer. “I had a lot of
inspirational people around and nurturing me. I was blessed,” she says of her childhood.
From almost the time she could walk Kristine was singing in church, talent contests and local
Oprys. The music she heard ranged from the sophisticated jazz her mother sang to hard-core
country to the classical warhorses and all between, plus the pop music on the radio. When she
first heard Summer, Kristine saw how all she was learning was also a part of her icon’s training
and background.

“When you latch onto an artist like that at such a young age and just immerse yourself in their
music, you pick up on all of their nuances,” Kristine explains. “She really was a huge influence
on how I approached my music career, including taking opera lessons.”
Kristine learned to play guitar and piano from her grandmother and took up alto saxophone at
seven years old to help her with her scat singing and improvisation. She would ride her bike
around her hometown of Pasco, WA searching out classic jazz albums at yard and garage
sales. “I studied with jazz coaches and was in all the jazz choirs, church choirs and in R&B
groups. Won all the local talent contests and then went to Seattle and Portland and Spokane
and beat them all there.”
Ultimately Kristine won the biggest local competition, Miss Washington, and went on to
compete for Miss America, winning the opening swimsuit and talent categories (the latter by
singing the Gershwin Broadway classic “Summertime”). The scholarship funds she earned
enabled her to head out from Pasco to pursue her musical dreams.
“I decided to take my scholarship money and head to Las Vegas,” Kristine explains. “I couldn’t
afford UCLA, it was too expensive. I couldn’t drive to New York because my car was too old
and beat up. So I thought: I can make it to Vegas and I can afford to go to school there. And I
know I can work my way through college performing. And I did. As soon as I arrived here I
started getting hired to do everything.”
She was determined to front and lead her own band as her mom had done. “I heard a lot of
you can’t do that, you can’t do this, you’re not going to be a female bandleader, it’s not gonna
happen, you’re going to have to sing with somebody else’s band. I was like I’m going to sing
with other people’s bands until I make enough money to buy my own PA and put together my
own band.”
And so she did, leading her group Kristine W and the Sting to prominence in the fiercely
competitive Vegas market, eventually performing at the Las Vegas Hilton more than any other
entertainer, including Elvis. “I won Entertainer of the Year, Best Singer, Best Band, Best
Showband,” explains Kristine. “I had 18 employees. I was the most successful female
bandleader probably ever as far as showbands go.”
Record labels and production companies constantly courted Kristine with offers to sing every
style of popular music imaginable. But her band’s specialty – molding pop and rock hits and
classics into propulsive dance numbers – belied her musical aim. “I’m a high energy person,”
she says. “I love the energy of dance music, always have. It’s really joyful and happy. To me
dance music is like the energy of life.”
So she took her voice and songs to Europe, where dance music reigns supreme and most of
the genre’s cutting edge producers and mixers are found, and recorded her first album in
London. In 1996, “Feel What You Want,” Kristine’s debut single, made an immediate mark in
the dance clubs, soaring to #1 here and abroad and becoming a dance floor classic. “One
More Try” followed for another #1 dance hit, and a third chart-topper on the album’s title song,
“Land of the Living,” secured Kristine’s place as a new dance floor star. When the album was
officially released in 1997, Kristine’s in-store concert at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square
drew lines of adoring fans around the block.
She signed with RCA Records and followed with more #1 hits on her 2000 album, Stronger like
its title tune and “Lovin’ You.” Just as she was establishing her career, Kristine was diagnosed
with a particularly aggressive strain of leukemia and given only a 30 percent chance of survival.
She was given an experimental stem cell transplant and spent two years fighting the disease
while also raising two infant children. Ironically, songs she had written before being struck by
the disease like “Land of the Living” and “One More Try” proved almost prophetic as well as
motivational as Kristine struggled to overcome the disease. “My music always seems to give
me the inspiration to keep fighting for it,” Kristine notes.
When Kristine returned with Fly Again on the pioneering indie dance label, Tommy Boy, in
2003, she racked up three more #1s: the title song, “Save My Soul” and “The Wonder of It All.”
Writing the album while hospitalized and recovering, Kristine further distinguished herself as an
artist whose songs of struggle and triumph speak to the lives of countless fans as well. After
topping the charts again with her dance remake of the Ashford/Simpson-penned Diana Ross
hit “The Boss,” Kristine then debuted as a totally independent and self-managed artist with The
Power of Music in 2009. Its seven #1 hits proved Kristine’s enduring appeal as a major dance
music artist.

Next up was a longtime singer’s dream project that also fulfilled a promise to her mother:
Straight Up with a Twist, a Top 15 two CD jazz chart album, on which she enjoyed three radio
hits, including a sensual reworking of her first dance hit, “Feel What You Want” and a jazz
rendition of heroine Donna Summers’ disco music landmark, “On The Radio.” Kristine also
transformed such rock classics as “Stairway to Heaven” and “Take It to the Limit” into vocal
jazz stunners, redid “The Boss” in yet another genre, and closed the set with her impassioned
reading of the folk-pop standard “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.”
Kristine returned to dance with her next album, New & Number Ones, revisiting some of her
past hits with new mixes and edits and offering new songs that also topped the charts. The
collection featured seven re-worked Kristine W originals, including “I Get Up,” “So Close To
Me,” Glow On,” “Busted,” “and “Through the Fire.” “Land of the Living” (1997) got a
Subgroover edit, ‘96’s “One More Try” enjoyed an expansive JRMX mix, and “Lovin’ You” from
2001 was edited by Soul Seekerz. “Love Come Home” opened the album in Subgroover style
and closed the set with a Frankie Knuckles Vs. Bitrocka Epic Club Duet. (Love Come Home
went Top 5 on Billboard’s Clubs Songs Chart in 2015 and Top 30 on the UK Club Chart.)
The collection was rounded out by covers of Chaka Khan’s “Through the Fire” and Donna
Summer’s “Sometimes Like Butterflies”; a tribute edit that recalled the golden days of disco.
Her new album is Love and Lies. It is the first part of her three-episode Issues double-album.
Being distributed globally through The Orchard, all eight songs on Issues Episode 1: Love and
Lies deal with love in its complexities: the deception from others as well as the lies we tell
ourselves.
The producers who lend their talent to Issues Episode 1: Love and Lies read like a veritable
who’s who of today’s top hitmakers. Hans W. Mallon from Holland, best known for his work
with Tiesto, shines with his productions of “Wind In the Trees”, “Can’t take No More" and
"Whites Girls.” Joey Moskowitz, responsible for creating some of the biggest US house
anthems of the last two decades, masterfully reinvents Kristine's #1 smash "Land Of The
Living." London superstar FREEJAK hits gold again with his radiating production of Kristine’s
“Stars.” Jesper Kettenis and Phill Wellz (both from Amsterdam) also appear on the album.
Following Issues Episode 1: Love and Lies, Episode 2 will deal with life’s battles including those
associated with relationships, work, time management and self-esteem. Episode 3 will
celebrate life's small victories. All thirty tracks of Issues will be released as a double album in
early 2021.
“I love creating the work and seeing people’s reaction to it,” Kristine W concludes. “My voice is
a gift and I’m thankful for it. It has definitely made my life very interesting. I’ve gotten to make a
difference and bring a lot of joy to the world, and that’s really what’s important.”

A Fantastic Accompaniment to Easter’s

Legendary Classic ‘THE TEN COMMANDMENTS’

‘THE LOST CITY OF CECIL B. DEMILLE’

Fascinating Documentary Heralds the Discovery of Long-Buried Sets

from DeMille’s Original 1923 Theatrical Epic

Digital Re-Release Accompanies Announcement of

2020 Final Excavation Effort

 


 

Los Angeles, Calif. – <<EASTER – APRIL 2020 >> – As the classic film THE TEN COMMANDMENTS heads back to television for its popular annual Easter Season airing (April 4th, 7 p.m. on ABC), the fascinating documentary film showcasing burial and recovery efforts of the original massive film set created for famed director Cecil B. DeMille’s 1923 version – THE LOST CITY OF CECIL B. DEMILLE - has returned to Digital and DVD. The documentary release comes in celebration of the announcement by California’s Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Center that the final excavation to recover the last of the sets that were hidden in the sand almost 100 years ago will begin this Fall, with fundraising currently ongoing to support the effort.

A Hollywood detective story that will thrill any fan of movies and history, THE LOST CITY OF CECIL B. DEMILLE pays tribute to Cecil B. DeMille, one of Hollywood’s most innovative and commercially successful filmmakers, showcasing the ‘making of’ both the original silent version of THE TEN COMMANDMENTS and the 1956 classic remake, while telling the story of the 30+ year quest to unearth the remains of his Egyptian city from the sandy coast of Central California.

The Dunes Center, located in California’s Santa Barbara County, has announced the final excavation to recover additional parts of the set by launching a new dig, timed from October 2020 to April 2021, depending on wildlife conservation and weather considerations. This 2020 final excavation is contingent upon completion of a fund-raising drive currently in progress.  

The center depends on community and volunteer support during excavation efforts, temporary dig permits and ensuring the proper curation of artifacts is ensured by art restorers who are contracted to supervise. However, the restoration effort must secure approximately $135,000 to properly complete their goal. From the start, excavation efforts have been painstaking and fraught with fundraising struggles,” noted Doug Jenzen, Executive Director of the Dunes Center.

For more information about the Dunes Center’s excavation effort, visit dunescenter.org or call 805-343-2455.

After these artifacts are restored, they are housed at the Dunes Center museum. The museum promotes and celebrates appreciation for the region’s natural treasures and unique history through state-of-the-art interactive exhibits. Among items housed at the museum is a perfectly intact 300 pound plaster sphinx head that was previously unearthed from the site.

ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY

 

THE LOST CITY OF CECIL B. DEMILLE follows the decades long quest of a group of young filmmakers who first heard rumors of the burial of DeMille’s City of the Pharaoh, a huge set encompassing 20 sphinxes and four 35-ton statues of Ramses, in 1982. Too daunting to be constructed inside a 1920’s-era studio soundstage, DeMille and his production staff found their “faux-Egypt” on the beaches of Santa Barbara County. When they finished shooting, rather than leave the sets to be repurposed by second-rate hacks hoping to steal a little of his thunder, DeMille had the sets buried in the sand, counting on time and coastal elements to eventually destroy them.

Fascinated by this bit of movie lore about “the last of the great sets” and optimistic that much of the set may have survived, the filmmakers set out to arrange for an excavation and to make a documentary. What followed was decades of on-again, off-again excavation efforts, as the project faced seemingly insurmountable funding stumbles and bureaucratic obstacles.   The film concurrently interweaves the history of famed director DeMille with fascinating firsthand accounts from dozens of people who were involved in the groundbreaking 1923 production, including studio executives, extras, spectators and the filmmaker’s granddaughter Cecilia DeMille Presley.

A fascinating companion to ‘The Ten Commandments’ showcasing the 30+ year quest to unearth the film’s massive sets, buried on the coast of California almost 100 years ago.
