The New Novel
3 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

With the assistance of Jeanie Macpherson bringing all of her experience from working with D.W. Griffith, the 37 year old Cecil B. DeMille was able to bring this novel to life in a film that is part of a trilogy (Old Wives for New, Don't Change Your Husbands, etc). This was the start of DeMille's films being regarded as the new novel.
