Trivia

May McAvoy was sought for a role but turned it down because it would have required her to cut her hair and wear costumes that were too revealing for her comfort level. The actress later said that she believed director Cecil B. DeMille had, out of spite, gone out of his way to damage her career. See more »

Attention to Detail
10 December 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee 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.
