Product description

'Epic' films, those concerned with monumental events and larger-than-life characters, cover the period from the Creation to the A.D. 1200s and have been churned out by Hollywood and overseas studios since the dawn of filmmaking. Arguably the master of the genre, Cecil B. DeMille hit upon the perfect mixture of sex, splendor, and the sacred to lure audiences to his epic productions.Each of the 355 alphabetically arranged entries in this book includes casts and credits, plot synopsis, and narratives on the making of the films. This second edition is accompanied by all new photographs.

Review quote

"[the author] has done a terrific job bringing all these films together. His comments are perceptive, sometimes funny, always well considered. A third volume would not be a bad thing" -- Classic Images "Classic Images"
