"A very important contribution both to cinema history and to early twentieth-century American history. . . . Higashi rewrites the history of early American cinema as a social history, situating it clearly in the development of American middle-class culture."—Richard Abel, author of The Ciné Goes to Town

"Cecil B. DeMille and the American Culture contributes significantly to scholarly understanding of the construction of the classic Hollywood cinema and, more generally, of consumer culture in the modern West."—Francis G. Couvares, Amherst College

By A Customer on June 2, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book was quite good but the best part was the behind the scenes view of cinema in the 20's. It is quite well written and focus on the genius of the director. I quite enjoyed it bu it would have profered more on the actual films of DeMille rather than the backround. Also i did not think it had a acurate portryal of some of his helper and really neglected to mention the people who helped Demille become who he was.
