Attention to Detail
10 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Although by this stage, the 42 year old Cecil B. DeMille was indulging himself in spectacles, he does pay attention to detail when it comes to costumes, and spares no expense in his research of props and authenticity. He makes a better painter of pictures than he does of directing actors.
