"Probably best remembered for the 1956 biblical epic The ten commandments, and his appearance (as himself) in the 1950s Sunset Blvd., Cecil B. DeMille's remarkable cinematic career stretches back as far as Charlie Chaplin's. DeMille's reputation as a demanding perfectionist was made in the early days of silent cinema, guiding the careers of such stars as Gloria Swanson, Mary Pickford, and Wallace Reid. This remarkable collection of vintage DeMille classics--some making their DVD debut--includes the very first film "CB" ever made--1914's The squaw man--and continues to the end of the silent era, just before sound ushered in an entirely new art form--one in which DeMille, once again, thrived. Bonus features include rare newsreel footage of DeMille, an interview with Charlton Heston, and the complete 1921 film Miss Lulu Bett--directed by Cecil's brother, William"--Container
