Cecil B. DeMille on the cover of TIME!

“When William Shakespeare was ready to write the story of Cleopatra, he needed nothing more than pen, ink, paper and his own lively genius. Three centuries later George Bernard Shaw required no more equipment for the same task. But when Paramount put Cecil Blount DeMille to work on this well-worn old tale, that old-time director could not even get started without $750,000, a majority of the unemployed actors in Hollywood, ten crates of real grapes by airmail from South America…” (Cover Story for Time magazine, Monday, Aug. 27, 1934)

Check out Cecil B. DeMille on the cover of Time magazine in 1934, after his film “Cleopatra”.
