Movie Info

In 1923, pioneer filmmaker Cecil. B. DeMille built the largest set in movie history for his silent (and early Technicolor) epic, The Ten Commandments. It was called "The City of the Pharaoh." When filming was completed, DeMille ordered that the entire edifice be dismantled... and secretly buried. And there it lay, forgotten, for the next 60 years.... the "lost city of Cecil B. DeMille." In 1983, a group of determined film buffs -- inspired by a cryptic clue in DeMille's posthumously published Autobiography -- located the remains of the set.

  • With its astute capsule biography of DeMille and firsthand accounts from people who worked with him, the film pays tribute to one of Hollywood's most innovative and commercially successful founding fathers.

  • Brosnan intercuts his own journey through local bureaucracy and unreliable corporate sponsorship with a somewhat dubious biography of DeMille, but despite some chintzy production values, it's still an absorbing story of Hollywood archaeology.
