The 47 year old Oscar Micheaux took a leaf out of Cecil B. DeMille's book by remaking his first film. DeMille's first film was 'The Squaw Man' (1914) which he remade in 1918 and 1931 respectively. Micheaux's first film was 'The Homesteader' (1919) which was an adaptation of his first novel, 'The Conquest' (1913). This film is a remake of both.
