What if the legendary director who invented Hollywood and the Biblical epic offered you his personal secrets to great achievement?Ready When You Are: Cecil B.

Cecil B. DeMille is famous for such epics as The Ten Commandments,Cleopatra [Blu-ray], and the Greatest Show On Earth and was one of the founders of early Hollywood and Paramount Pictures with seventy feature films to his credit.
Acclaimed filmmaker Steven Spielberg credits DeMille for inspiring him to make movies and “dream for a living.” Spielberg says, “C.B. DeMille showed me how to put a lot of money up on the big screen and then make the studios pay for it.”
DeMille’s granddaughter, Cecilia de Mille Presley said that she considers Spielberg “the DeMille of today. Like Grandfather, he has consistently been able to capture vast audiences. He has had great commercial success without losing his personal vision or compromising his integrity.”
