Cecil B. DeMille as Editor
30 October 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In the same way that Charles Chaplin edited 'The Gold Rush' and some of his subsequent films, as well as Robert Rodriguez in the 1990's, Cecil B. DeMille did the same in his early films in order to ensure that his projects got off the ground. Such is the case in 'What's His Name'. This means that every aspiring director out there should also learn how to edit their own films.
