Cecil B. DeMille's Hollywood

"It's a fascinating insight into the inner workings of DeMille's seventy films with such a wealth of evidence and the kind of precision that gives the reader real confidence in the trustworthiness of what they are being told. And whilst no-one will ever be able to capture everything about Cecil Blount DeMille within the pages of a mere book, "Cecil B. DeMille's Hollywood" is certainly an admirable attempt."―Bible Films Blog
