Personal Quote:

I like Cleopatra (1934) very much, but I think I like The Crusades (1935) a little better. I think Crusades is one of the best pictures DeMille ever made. It really holds up; it doesn't date at all. As you know, Loretta Young played Queen Berengaria, and I played Richard the Lionhearted. But they were both very good pictures, no doubt about that. See more »
