The Novel and Cecil B. DeMille
17 November 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

Having achieved success on Broadway, DeMille could not but help bringing plays to the screen. In this film he brings together a play and a novel with the assistance of Oscar Apfel as his mentor director. He was not yet at the stage where he could write his own screenplays.
