Remembering Hollywood’s “First Day”

On December 29, 1913, Cecil B. DeMille began Hollywood’s first feature film. On May 21, 1957, DeMille and his biographer Art Arthur studied a photograph taken that day. By running your cursor across the photo, you can read what DeMille had to say about his troupe.

Art Arthur: I wanted to put in front of you this print of that first day of The Squaw Man. I wondered if you could sort of take them from left to right and tell me who you can identify.

C.B. DeMille: Very well.
