How Cecil B. DeMille Demented The World

 

 

Hollywood has been shaping culture for over a century.

  

 

Please watch these two excerpts from the same documentary. I have set both clips to start play back the quotes I want to focus on.

They are both very revealing and shows how Hollywood consciously shapes personal behavior.

Hollywood Ep 7 Autocrats

Religious Fervor & Sex Sells

The focus is all about two directors notorious for their extravagance: Cecil B. DeMille and Erich von Stroheim. While DeMille managed to flourish in the silent era and the sound era, von Stroheim's career essentially collapsed under its own weight.

These two excerpts really say it all, don't they?

"Cecil Blount DeMille August 12, 1881 – January 21, 1959) was an American filmmaker. Between 1913 and 1956, he made a total of 70 features, both silent and sound films.  He is acknowledged as a founding father of the cinema of the United States and the most commercially successful producer-director in film history. His films were distinguished by their epic scale and by his cinematic showmanship. He made silent films of every genre: social dramas, comedies, Westerns, farces, morality plays, and historical pageants.

DeMille began his career as a stage actor in 1900.  He later moved to writing and directing stage productions, some with Jesse Lasky, who was then a vaudeville producer. DeMille's first film, The Squaw Man (1914), was also the first feature film shot in Hollywood. Its interracial love story made it a phenomenal hit and it "put Hollywood on the map."[5] The continued success of his productions led to the founding of Paramount Pictures with Lasky and Adolph Zukor. His first biblical epic, The Ten Commandments (1923), was both a critical and financial success;[6] it held the Paramount revenue record for twenty-five years 

In 1927 he directed The King of Kings, a biography of Jesus of Nazareth, which was acclaimed for its sensitivity and reached more than 800 million viewers. The Sign of the Cross (1932) was the first sound film to integrate all aspects of cinematic technique. Cleopatra (1934) was his first film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. After more than thirty years in film production, DeMille reached the pinnacle of his career with Samson and Delilah (1949), a biblical epic which did "an all-time record business."  Along with biblical and historical narratives, he also directed films oriented toward "neo-naturalism," which tried to portray the laws of man fighting the forces of nature. 

He went on to receive his first nomination for the Academy Award for Best Director for his circus drama The Greatest Show on Earth (1952), which won the Academy Award for Best Picture. His last and most famous film, The Ten Commandments (1956), is currently the sixth highest-grossing film of all-time adjusted for inflation.."
