Críticas: "An opulently beautiful photographic history of the director." "This book, by Cecilia deMille Presley and Mark Vieira, is everything DeMille's movies were -- stupendous, lavish, colorful, too much and not enough. It is packed with fabulous photos -- of the great DeMille stars, mammoth sets, costume sketches. And chock full of anecdotes about the man himself." --Liz Smith, "This lavishly produced book is worthy of its subject: a giant volume celebrating the work of a man who looms over film history, larger than life. Historian and photographer Vieira has culled stunning stills and conceptual artwork from the DeMille archives and photographed surviving props and costumes to illustrate his lively, anecdotal text. The director's loving granddaughter has added her vivid memories of the man she knew and her visits to his movie sets. Scorsese, ever the enthusiast, shares his earliest memories of seeing DeMille movies on a theater screen before discovering his groundbreaking work in the silent era. Whether you choose to read or simply browse, this beautiful tome is well worth owning." --Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy "Coauthors Presley (DeMille's granddaughter and vice chairman, the National Film Preservation Fdn.) and photographer/author Vieira (George Hurrell's Hollywood; Majestic Hollywood) have compiled a gorgeous treasure trove of film stills, portraits, sketches, costumes, and props and interlaced them with Vieira's well-written text and Presley's family histories. VERDICT For anyone interested in early film, costume design, set design, or the history of Hollywood epics, this is an exciting find. For DeMille fans, it is a must-have." --Library Journal
