• RAMÓN NOVARRO COMO BEN-HUR EN BEN-HUR: A TALE OF THE CHRIST DE SAMUEL GOLDWIN Y LOUIS B. MEYER. 1925 • #RamónNovarro , cuyo nombre real era Juan Ramón Gil Samaniego (Victoria de Durango, México; 6 de febrero de 1899-Hollywood, Estados Unidos; 30 de octubre de 1968), fue el primer actor mexicano que trabajó y que logró el éxito en #Hollywood . Novarro participó en 55 películas, donde además trabajó como director, productor y guionista. Es recordado como uno de los grandes #LatinLovers del cine mudo. Empezó su carrera cinematográfica en 1916 dirigido por #CecilBDeMille ; entonces complementaba sus ingresos trabajando como profesor de piano, camarero y cantante. El director #RexIngram y la esposa de éste, la actriz Alice Terry, empezaron a promocionarlo como rival de #RodolfoValentino , primer Latin Lover; fue entonces cuando Ingram le sugirió cambiar su apellido a #Novarro y tras la muerte de #Valentino , Novarro se convertiría en el actor latino más importante, solicitado y recurrente de Hollywood. La película Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ fue estrenada el 30 de diciembre de 1925, basada en la novela homónima de 1880 escrita por Lew Wallace con Novarro como protagonista en el papel de #BenHur . El filme fue dirigido por Fred Niblo para la #MetroGoldwynMayer y supuso un extraordinario éxito, a pesar de los enormes problemas técnicos y aunque dados los inmensos costos de producción, no obtuvo grandes beneficios. En 1997, la película fue considerada «cultural, histórica y estéticamente significativa» por la Biblioteca del Congreso de Estados Unidos y seleccionada para su preservación en el #NationalFilmRegistry . #México #Méjico #Mexico #América #America #Norteamérica #NorthAmerica #ActorMexicano #MexicanActor #MexicanHistory #AmericanHistory #architecture #design #CineMudo #SilentMovie #SilverScreen #star #MovieStar #ThisWasHollywood
The Hollywood Heritage Museum is open on Saturday and Sunday from 12-4pm. The collection is focused on early Hollywood film industry history. Pictured here is a chair from the Cecil B. DeMille silent “The Cheat.” Of course, DMille is of special interest since the museum is housed in the barn he and Jesse Lasky leased as their first Hollywood production facility. #cecilbdemille #silentfilm #hollywoodpioneers #hollywoodhistory #hollywoodheritage #hollywoodheritagemuseum

Gloria Swanson en star du cinéma muet déchue dans Sunset Boulevard de Billy Wilder. . « We didn’t need dialogue.

Actor Harry Frederick Wilcoxon was born September 8, 1905 in Dominica, British West Indies. After a Dickensian childhood, he attended a succession of boarding schools in Barbados and England before touring with the Birmingham Repertory Theatre. He made his film debut in The Perfect Lady (1931). Paramount talent scouts spotted him while he was performing in a West End production of The Barretts of Wimple Street; he filmed a screen test which later attracted the attention of director Cecil B. DeMille. He was renamed Henry Wilcoxon before DeMille cast him as Marc Antony to replace Fredric March in Cleopatra (1934); thus, a 22-year friendship began. Paramount starred him in DeMille's subsequent pic The Crusades (1935) which underwhelmed at the box office and loaned him out before dropping him in early 1936; they re-signed him later that year. He then made several pics for 20th Century-Fox and productions made in Egypt and England. He appeared in such propaganda films as That Hamilton Woman (1941) and Mrs. Miniver (1942) before enlisting in the U.S. Navy and serving on the U.S.S. Albuquerque. Through the late 1940s, he mostly appeared in films for DeMille but also did work with other directors. He assisted DeMille in production duties with The Greatest Show on Earth (1952) and The 10 Commandments (1956). Unfortunately, his film career faltered after DeMille's death in 1959. He is best remembered these days for his penultimate film, Caddyshack (1980), in which he played a golf-obssessed Bishop. He was married 3 times to actresses Heather Angel, Sheila Browning, and Joan Woodbury; he was also rumored to pick up male hitchhikers for one-night stands. He died March 6, 1984 in his Burbank residence of heart failure. #henrywilcoxon #paramountpictures #englishactor #cecilbdemille #classichollywood #suit #bisexual #menwithstyle #hat #latergram
Gloria Swanson plays Leila Porter in ‘Don’t Change Your Husband’ (1919) which was her first film under the direction of Cecil B. DeMille. This was the first of five consecutive films they would make together between 1919 and 1920. DeMille would later direct Swanson once more in ‘The Affairs of Anatol’ in 1921 but wouldn’t work with her again until ‘Sunset Boulevard’ (1950)🌻 . . #GloriaSwanson #GloriousSwanson #Film #Cinema #SilentFilm #SilentCinema #ClassicCinema #FilmHistory #OldMovies #Hollywood #OldHollywood #OldHollywoodGlamour #OldMovies #1910s #1920s #Fashion #Style #Beautiful #Glamour #Vintage #VintageGlamour #VintageGirl #VintageMovies #Beauty #Flapper #Retro #BlackandWhite #WordPress #Blog #CecilBDeMille
Happy 101st birthday Don Marion Davis (born October 9, 1917), dubbed ‘The Most Famous Child Star in the World’, whilst working almost exclusively for Mack Sennett from 1919 until 1923. He appeared in almost 30 two-reel shorts. • He was discovered by Sennett whilst his mother, Helen David, pushed her baby in a pram on the Keystone Studios lot whilst visiting her brother-in-law, actor Billy Armstrong. Pretty Helen Davis attracted the eye of the powerbrokers at Keystone Studios, and was given a few minor parts in films. Little ‘Baby’ Don made his own film debut shortly after WWI, billed as John Henry Jr., in "Cupid’s Day Off" (1919); he followed this with "His Last False Sleep" (1919), "The Star Boarder" (1920), directed by another relative of the nipper, his uncle James D. Davis, and "Officer Cupid" (1921). • Don became a firm favourite of actress Louise Fazenda, who Sennett had successfully hired to star in a series of family featured shorts about ‘The Smith Family’, featuring Billy Bevan and Henry Jr. as her infant son. • His other films include: "Jealous Husbands"; Cecil B. deMille’s "The Golden Bed"; played Charles Ray's character as a child in "Percy"; and the western "The Golden Princess" (all 1925). It was to be his final film. • “My parents felt I needed a proper education away from the film set,” he remembered in 2016. He attended the Hollywood High School; graduating in 1936, and from there he travelled to Eugene, enrolling at the University of Oregon. • During WWII, he saw action on the front line in Belgium and France. Following the war, he served as an instructor at the West Point Academy, commanding a base in East Africa, before leaving to join his old comrades in action during the Korean War in 1950. During the Vietnam War, he served on the staff of the Joints Chiefs of Staff in the Pentagon. When he retired from military service, he and his wife Gladys, who he married in 1939, settled in Tucson, Arizona. She died in 1991. • • #iusedtobeinpictures #donmariondavis #childstar #silentscreen #hollywood #macksennett #silenthollywood #1910s #1920s #louisefazenda #centenarian #keystonestudio #cecilbdemille #forgottenstars #actor #armyveteran #wwii

Alien (1979) behind the scenes. This is the Space Jockey set which almost didn't get built. 20th Century Fox didn't want to spend money on building a huge set that would only feature in one scene, but conceptual artist Ron Cobb convinced them to keep it in the film, stating it would be the film's "Cecil B. DeMille shot", i.e. more than just a B-grade Sci-fi #alien #alienmovie #spacejockey #riddleyscott #20thcenturyfox #roncobb #film #cinema #set #productiondesign #cecilbdemille #cinematography #filmprops #sciencefiction #moviecamera #movies

Released on the 5th of October, 1956, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS is 62 years old!

#inktober Day 5. The Crusades 1935. The great crusade has begun! Richard the Lionheart wants to avoid getting married to the princess of France so badly, that he decides to lead England into the crusades to reclaim Jerusalem from Saladin. He changes his tune on marriage when he sees the princess of Navarre though. The battles are big, sweeping, romantic, and full of loose 1930s safety practices that occasionally make you wonder if any extras legitimately died during filming. You can see a guy get whapped in the head by a wooden lance early on. And there's some really beautiful black and white cinematography where the swords and armor seem extra shiny so they really pop. Underrated in my opinion. #illustration #sketch #sketchbook #bluepencil #brushpen #kuretake #ink #inktober2018 #movies #thecrusades #cecilbdemille #henrywilcoxon #deusvult #adudenamedjoe #joejaguar
Crítica Sensata (No.44) Filme: The Ten Commandments (Os Dez Mandamentos) Gênero: Épico dramático Ano: 1956 _ Monumentalismo, ostentação, grandes cenários, cunho religioso e um protaginista heróico e determinado. Este é o básico para criar um filme épico, que desde os anos 20 está presente nas produções cinematográficas norte-americanas. Porém no meio dos anos 50, Cecil B. DeMille (o mesmo de "Samson and Delilah" de 1949) nos apresentou uma película que iria popularizar ainda mais o gênero, e o levá-lo à outro patamar na indústria cinematográfica. "The Ten Commadments" foi a obra definitiva da carreira de DeMille. Um filme que custou caro, mas rendeu muito dinheiro. Isso surpreende pois produções ambiciosas às vezes não ganham tanto nas bilheterias, e também obter um sucesso de crítica de público e especialistas. Mas a película de DeMille era especial, uma produção atraente e eficiente no quesito figurino, montagem de cenas e som. Criação dos cenários e um grande elenco que tinha que acompanhar um script, com mais de 300 páginas (e 1200 storyboard) DeMille queria fazer um filme grandioso e ao mesmo tempo renovado, afinal o diretor já realizou um filme sobre os dez mandamentos em 1923, mas acompanhando a evolução dos filmes. O diretor se sentiu motivado e pesquisou muito, sobre a história de Moisés e assim criar esta película magnífica. "The Ten Commandments" foi grandioso na época, e hoje é um dos filmes mais importantes da história. Sua repercussão insentivou ainda mais Hollywood à produzir mais filmes épicos, abordando histórias bíblicas. Foi o filme que deixou o ator Charlton Heston popular e bem reconhecido, praticamente impossível não lembrar dele por causa de sua atuação como Moisés (foi um papel que definil a carreira dele). Filme espetacular que não erra nos seus quesitos, uma obra de arte que é difícil de ser imitada ou superada.
October 5th, 1956 The Ten Commandments premieres in the US, beginning a two year roadshow release schedule across America. A partial remake of the silent film Cecil B. DeMille also directed 33 years earlier, it was billed as the most expensive movie ever made. Starring Charlton Heston as Moses and Yul Brynner as Rameses, this version was DeMille’s final film (and his most successful.) It earned $65.5 million during its initial run, and is the 6th biggest movie ever when adjusting for inflation.

"There's a special excitement in playing a man who made a hole in history large enough to be remembered centuries after he died." Born today, one of Hollywood’s greatest leading men and a legendary figure of US cinema, Charlton Heston appeared in almost 100 films over the course of 60 years. He played Moses in the epic film The Ten Commandments(1956), for which he received his first nomination for the Golden Globe Award and won the Oscar for Best Actor in Ben-Hur (1959). #charltonheston #benhur #actor #legend #borntoday #hbd #thetencommandments #classicmovies #moviescenes #planetoftheapes #oscarwinner #cine #movies #cine #cinema #peliculas #classiccinema #onthisday #onset #behindthescenes #cecilbdemille

Artists' Film International opens tomorrow @maatmuseum Lisbon! And If In A Thousand Years will show as part of the exhibition until 22nd of April 2019. • Initiated by the @whitechapelgallery , London, Artists’ Film International is a partnership between several international institutions to bring together a set films by artists from around the world under a common theme. The selected works are then exhibited at each institution in different formats and exhibition spaces, therefore gaining new and distinct readings. • Truth is the theme chosen for this edition. The curatorial concept to be presented at Boiler Room, started from a quote from Saint Augustine: “Man walks in the image of truth”, thus shifting the theme of Truth to the image itself and to the medium of film. #artistsfilminternational #maatlisboa #lisbon #truth #sphinx #excavation #dig #Hollywood #cecilbdemille

Had a blast exploring the #RanchoGuadalupeDunes on the central coast this weekend, where they’re still digging up the remains of Cecil B. DeMille’s “The Ten Commandments” Egyptian movie set from the 20s. The @DunesCenter displays many of the artifacts, which is a mindf*ck: you’re looking at Roman- and Egyptian-style objects recovered from decades of sand, and the mind doesn’t want to grasp that they’re only from the 20s. I discovered some of my own artifacts too - I showed the park ranger this pic of bones and he advised it could be deer, boar, or mountain lion. I was surprised anything could survive out here, until I saw small pockets of lush oases here and there among the dunes. Last two pics are from the drive to/fro - a trail in the #SantaYnez mountains, and #LakeCachuma . . . . . . . . . . #ranchoguadalupe #dunes #guadalupedunespreserve #guadalupedunes #goexplore #exploremore #explorecalifornia #traveladdict #travelblogger #californiathroughmylens #roamtheplanet #theglobewanderer #solotraveller #rei1440project #ipulledoverforthis #travelblogging #discovertheroad #femaletravelbloggers #thedetoureffect #cecilbdemille #filmset #californiawildlife #bones #optoutside #losangelesdaytrip #californiaroadtrip #filmhistory

DeMille having cast his “Cleopatra” with star Claudette Colbert was still searching for his Marc Antony. Stopping by a screening room he said, “I heard, come from the soundtrack of the test film, a resonant, manly voice, with only a pleasant trace of an English accent...I asked who the young actor was.” It was a screen-test for Henry Wilcoxon (1905-1984). Changing his name from Harry to Henry DeMille found his Antony. Born in the West Indies together with his older brother after the disappearance of his mother it was back to England, a foster home and later an orphanage living in poverty and illness. Trying many things, a boxer, tailor, salvage diver, chauffeur and then finally acting, first on stage and then in films in England, his stage work was noticed by Paramount, resulting in a test. DeMille impressed with his test cast him in his hit “Cleopatra.” Encouraged by its success DeMille cast him again in his next “The Crusades” with Young. An expensive failure it ended Wilcoxon’s chances at major stardom. Working regularly on screen it was now in B’s and character parts in major productions notably “That Hamilton Woman” and “Mrs. Miniver.” As the vicar, the sermon he helped write was not only a rousing highlight of the film but utilised by President Roosevelt during WWII. Already serving in WWII himself in the Coast Guard it was DeMille who would became like a surrogate father. Wilcoxon would regularly turn up in small by key roles in DeMille pictures: “Unconquered”, “Samson and Delilah”, “The Greatest Show on Earth” as associate producer also, “The Ten Commandments” and Producer for an ailing DeMille for his final film “The Buccaneer.” Frequently seen on TV, his rare film appearances were topped off late in his career memorably as the golf playing Bishop of the hit “Caddyshack.” During his 25 years with DeMille he was actor, casting director, associate producer, producer, and close friend. By all accounts this was the man before, during and after DeMille.
Pedro de Cordoba (28 September 1881 – 16 September 1950) was an American actor. De Cordoba was born in New York City to parents who were French and Cuban in origin. He was a classically trained theatre actor who confessed he did not enjoy appearing in silent films nearly as much as he liked working on stage, but his career during the silent film era was extensive. His first film was Cecil B. DeMille's version of Carmen (1915), and he soon became a popular leading man in Hollywood. His Broadway career cast him with such stage actresses as Jane Cowl and Katharine Cornell.Later, his deeply resonant speaking voice made him perfectly suited to talking pictures, and his film career continued, unlike many silent film stars. He enjoyed a career as a busy character actor in Hollywood, from the 1930s through to the end of his life. He was most often cast as aristocratic, or clerical characters of Hispanic origin, as in The Keys of the Kingdom (1944), because of his last name as well as his royal bearing. On rare occasions, he would be cast in the role of a villain. His "living skeleton" sideshow character hides fugitive Robert Cummings (and Priscilla Lane) in his carnival wagon overnight in the Alfred Hitchcock film Saboteur (1942).He was a devout Catholic and was very well read and knowledgeable about the Catholic faith, and served for a time as president of the Catholic Actors Guild of America. The last film in which he appeared, a political drama set in an unnamed South American dictatorship, Crisis (1950), was released shortly after his death. He was married 2x; had two children, who died less than a year old. (Wik)
(tbt) FLYING TIGERS. These photographs were shot at the old Cecil B DeMille Casting Offices on Hollywood Blvd and Western. We were the first band to rent rehearsal space there. In the basement was an old billiards hall. When we first moved in, there were old movie posters on the walls and a couple rooms that had old cots with raggedy mattresses. Our guitarist Larry eluded about the Hollywood “casting couch”. Today, that historical building is an CVS Pharmacy. . . Grateful for the past looking forward to the future.

Scott co-produced both versions. Her last production was Twelve Angry Men, which was performed at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Hollywood, California. Scott also appeared regularly on tv from the 1950s until her last appearance in 1990 (various sitcoms, dramas, soaps, variety shows, etc. which showcased her versatility.).
