Сесил Б. ДеМилль
Родился в Ashfield, штат Массачусетс, США.
Director, Producer, Editor, Writer, even Actor: one of the silver screen's greatest talents. Though throughout his multi-faceted he made an invaluable contribution to movie making, DeMille came up relatively short at the Academy Awards. Though three of his films were nominated for Best Picture of the year (CLEOPATRA (1934), THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH (which won in 952), and THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (1956)), he received only one personal nomination-- that for Best Director of THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH-- and was passed over for John Ford and THE QUIET MAN. The Academy did present him with an honorary Oscar in 1950 however, followed by the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award in 1953.
