Cecil B. DeMille movies: 20 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Ten Commandments,’ ‘The King of Kings’
Cecil B. DeMille would’ve celebrated his 138th birthday on August 12, 2019. One of cinema’s earliest pioneers, the Oscar-winning director helmed 70 films throughout the silent and sound era. He made his mark in a number of genres, but was most famous for his spectacularly mounted biblical epics. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 20 of his greatest movies, ranked worst to best.

Born in 1881, DeMille made his directorial debut with “The Squaw Man” (1914), a story he remade in 1918 and 1931. He made dozens of silent films, including the ambitious biblical stories “The Ten Commandments” (1923) and “The King of Kings” (1927). He entered into the sound era with ease, earning his first Oscar nomination in Best Picture for the Claudette Colbert-headlined version of “Cleopatra” (1934).
