This is a valuable and corrective biography that restores the reputation of Cecil B. DeMille, one of Hollywood's great pioneers. In Many ways, DeMille virtually created film making, and his influence is with us even now. But he began to make epic films involving huge casts and enormous budgets, and his influence and prestige waned. Now, this excellent biographer offers us a tender, delightful, and kind study of a very great man.
