Best Picture - The Greatest Show on Earth
12 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Cecil B. DeMille's award for Best Picture (The Greatest Show on Earth) demonstrates that he was a better producer than he was a director. He could bring together the creative talents of James Stewart, Charlton Heston, Cornel Wilde, Gloria Grahame, Dorothy Lamour, Betty Hutton and Henry Wilcoxon in a beautifully photographer film, even though it was a bit thin in pace and story.
