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

Isn't it nice to have a brother than works in the theatre! The 34 year old Cecil B. DeMille got his inspiration to direct this film from his brother's (William DeMille) stage play of the same title. When he wasn't collaborating with Jeanie Macpherson or adapting novels, he merely drew inspiration from his brother.
