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”.

Orson Welles on the cover of “TIME”

On May 9th, 1938, Orson Welles appeared on the cover of “Time” magazine. And why, do I hear you wonder was Welles on the cover before he created and released all his film classics?
Because he had co-founded Mercury Theater with actor John Houseman. After four hit plays in six months, Welles made the cover of Time. Welles shocked America with his adaptation of HG Wells‘s The War of the Worlds on Halloween night. “I wish I could convey the atmosphere… the background of this… fantastic scene.” These were the first words of a broadcast which terrified its audience by sounding like a news bulletin, not a play.
