Directed by Cecil B. DeMille • 1927 • United States
Starring H. B. Warner, Dorothy Cumming, Jacqueline Logan
THE KING OF KINGS is the Greatest Story Ever Told as only Cecil B. DeMille could tell it. In 1927, working with one of the biggest budgets in Hollywood history, DeMille spun the life and Passion of Christ into a silent-era blockbuster. Featuring text drawn directly from the Bible, a cast of thousands, and the great showman’s singular cinematic bag of tricks, THE KING OF KINGS is at once spectacular and deeply reverent, part Gospel, part Technicolor epic.
The DeMille Studios produced many reels of behind-the-scenes footage of the cast and crew on the set of THE KING OF KINGS. Shot for publicity use, these clips and stills show the dimension and scale of a DeMille production in full swing.
