The 34 Year Old Cecil B. DeMille
17 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Once DeMille joined forces with Jeanie Macpherson, he was able to write original screenplays like this one rather than relying totally on adapting novels or plays. This film says a lot more about the relationship between DeMille and Macpherson than it does about the characters.
