The first Hollywood feature film
9 October 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Due to the fact that this was the first feature film in Hollywood (as all the previous projects were short film subjects) which was an adaptation of a novel and stage play, you have to give it time and credit if you are an aspiring writer or director. It was made in 1914 when Cecil B. DeMille was 34 years old and was the same year that Charlie Chaplin made his screen debut with the keystone cops in a short subject titled 'Making A Living' on the 9th February. He may have been somewhat Victorian in his style of directing, but he was first and foremost a stage director that translated those skills onto the screen. Most of his films are quite wordy, lacking of pace and wooden (with the exception of 'Samson and Delilah'), but he was a master of spectacle, and could shock his audience of the time. As well as being DeMille's debut feature film, it was also Hal Roach's debut film as an actor who went on to become the master of short film comedy.
