"Probably best remembered for the 1956 biblical epic The ten commandments, and his appearance (as himself) in the 1950s Sunset Blvd., Cecil B. DeMille's remarkable cinematic career stretches back as far as Charlie Chaplin's. DeMille's reputation as a demanding perfectionist was made in the early days of silent cinema, guiding the careers of such stars as Gloria Swanson, Mary Pickford, and Wallace Reid. This remarkable collection of vintage DeMille classics--some making their DVD debut--includes the very first film "CB" ever made--1914's The squaw man--and continues to the end of the silent era, just before sound ushered in an entirely new art form--one in which DeMille, once again, thrived. Bonus features include rare newsreel footage of DeMille, an interview with Charlton Heston, and the complete 1921 film Miss Lulu Bett--directed by Cecil's brother, William"--Container

"Hajj, beggar and thief, schemes with a guide to obtain gold from the famous bandit, the White Sheik, who is searching for his long-lost son; but Hajj recognizes the White Sheik as his enemy, Jawan, and refuses the guide his share; and the guide has Hajj arrested. Mansur, the Wazir of Police, offers Hajj the choice of losing his hand and his daughter, Marsinah, or assassinating the caliph. Saved from Hajj's dagger by his coat of mail, the caliph sends the beggar to prison, where he encounters Jawan, kills his enemy, exchanges clothing, and is released. Hajj is soon again in Mansur's clutches for trying to spirit his daughter from the wazir's harem, but Hajj kills Mansur (Jawan's son) just as the caliph enters. Rather than receiving further punishment, Hajj is released, for the caliph, who has disguised himself as his gardener's son, is about to marry Marsinah"--AFI catalog, 1921-1930
