DeMille Learning his Trade
12 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

It was agony watching this film. Obviously DeMille can't direct because there was no heart or substance in the story. You don't feel anything when you watch this film, except boredom. There was no warmth or story in the film, and I'm surprised Apfel even gave DeMille the opportunity to direct.
