Description - Cecil B. Demille and the Golden Calf by Simon Louvish
Cecil B. DeMille is Hollywood's most enduring legend, remembered, and often reviled, for his grandiose Biblical sagas, such as Samson and Delilah and his 1956 version of The Ten Commandments, with its cast of tens of thousands before computer graphics made the modern epic mundane.Simon Louvish tells the tale of Cecil B. DeMille through his work: a major re-examination of Hollywood's most monumental founder. Savant or sinner, artist or hack, defender of freedom or hypocritical opportunist who embraced the golden calf of sheer commercialism?
