A Sermonic Film
22 December 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

Although DeMille was groomed in the theatre, his films came across like visual sermons. Even though there was no dialogue in this film, it was heavily layered with speech rather than visuals. It was a bit like going to church watching this film. DeMille could easily be mistaken for a vicar rather than a director.
