People gathered Dec. 12 at The Demille Barn in the Hollywood Heritage Museum to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of movies with a new book about Cecil B. DeMille, who helped start the business. Authors Mark Vieira and Cecilia de Mille Presley showed off their new book, “Cecil B. DeMille: The Art of the Hollywood Epic”.
This producer-director captured a worldwide audience with “The King of Kings”, “The Sign of the Cross”, “The Greatest Show on Earth”, “Samson and Delilah”, and “The Ten Commandments”.
This art-format book contains concept paintings, costumes, props and an array of photographic imagery. There is text by his granddaughter.
