October 20, 1956: Toward The Unknown Premiers at Edwards AFB

Sixty years ago today, on October 20, 1956, Toward The Unknown premiered to a gathering at the Edwards AFB Base Theater. This was also opening night for the brand new new theater. William Holden, Virginia Leith, James Garner, LQ Jones and other stars from the movie appeared for the event and party.

The Edwards community is celebrating by showing the movie in the same base theater, some 60 years later.  Check out the Edwards AFB Facebook page for video from the festivities, including a classic car show in the parking lot.

I had the opportunity to do a presentation on TTU in the base theater last month before a special showing. Yep, I wish I was there again!
