3/30/11: Cecil B. DeMille

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Wednesday, we're talking about the epic films and the epic life of director Cecil B. DeMille. DeMille is best known for his spectacular works like "The Ten Commandments" and "King of Kings." Biographer Scott Eyman says that DeMille saw these films as a kind of ministry but he knew that to be effective, he had to give people something they couldn't see anywhere else. Doug is joined by Eyman, actor Lisa Mitchell and by James D'Arc, curator of the Cecil B. DeMille Archives at BYU.

Wednesday at 6:00 p.m., BYU will host a screening of the full-length, four-hour version of DeMille's "Ten Commandments." The film begins at 6:00 p.m. at the Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium. Admission is free. For more information, click here.

The Ten Commandments is just out on Blu-ray, with a new documentary on the making of the film. The Ten Commandments (Limited Edition Gift Set) (DVD/Blu-ray Combo)
