The 33 Year Old Cecil B. DeMille
17 November 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

Learning his trade as a writer and director from Oscar Apfel, DeMille followed in the footsteps of D.W. Griffith by adapting literature to the screen. Because of his background as a theatre director, he brought opera as well as the stage to screen as he did in this film.
