Cecil B DeMille made movies for and of the masses, highlighting myths, mystery, and oversized stories. He excelled in the telling of the ultimate legends carved out of the Bible. The simple, straightforward saga of the last days of Christ's life is told in "The King of Kings." Told with DeMille's trademark opulent sets, incredible effects, and a cast of thousands, it is carefully crafted, flawless film making filled with as much meaning and message as possible. In 1927, working with the biggest budget in the history of Hollywood, DeMille spun the life of Christ into one of the highest-grossing, artistically executed films of all time

Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy sing the glorious music of Sigmund Romberg and Oscar Hammerstein II! Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy conjure romantic magic once more in the sixth of their eight fabled films -- this one based on the inspiring 1927 operetta about a beautiful young French heiress and a dashing revolutionary nobleman irresistibly drawn together in 19th-century New Orleans. Savor again the delicious flavors of Naughty Marietta, Maytime and Sweethearts in this swashbuckling adventure that transports Mlle. Marianne de Beaumanoir and Charles, Duc de Villiers, to the stormy high seas, piracy and shipwreck on an uncharted tropical island. Note among the impressive cast the great silent screen comic Buster Keaton as the prisoner Lulu and the famed vaudevillian Joe Yule (Mickey Rooney's father) as Maurice. This magnificent motion picture experience is a joy forever. - Container
