He loved a good story

by Michael Polzella
Greatest Filmmaker of All Time

Although the town he grew up in was – and still is – often called “Little Washington” to distinguish it from the nation’s capital, there was nothing little about Cecil’s imagination.

Washington was a sleepy little town in the late 1800s, but Cecil’s father had the flare of a dramatist and was a lay leader in the local Episcopal church. He would tell Bible stories to his children each night.

Young Cecil paid attention and developed a love for storytelling that lasted his entire life.

Have you heard of Cecil B. DeMille? He is often called the greatest filmmaker of all time.
