A Hollywood Director Who Cared

Since I was on a movie theme yesterday, I figured I'd continue with it today, especially after finding this Christian Post article about the late director Cecil B. DeMille.

DeMille, of course, is best known probably for the 1956 film "The Ten Commandments," which starred Charlton Heston and a host of other Hollywood greats. It was one of the last great "epic" productions out of Tinseltown, and in my view, one of the most powerful films ever done. True, it did not follow Scripture in every jot or tittle, but the subject matter was handled with reverence and respect. Cecil would be very unhappy to see how matters of faith are handled these days in the entertainment industry.

Anyway, read the article, and think. The days when a Hollywood director would work tirelessly to erect monuments to the 10 Commandments are long gone. These days, as the article points out, people are working tirelessly to tear them down as fast as they can.

It won't work. The originals are in Good Hands and aren't going anywhere. Like it or not.
