Cecil B. DeMille Collection
A remarkable collection of 8 silent film classics from the innovative and prolific film director Cecil B. DeMille, from the years 1914 to 1926.
S01:E07 - The Road to Yesterday
Malena's apparent frigidity toward her husband Kenneth is a result of injustice done in an earlier incarnation, when he was a knight and she was a gypsy headed for an impending execution at the stake. Their unconscious minds travel back from a train wreck in the American plains to Elizabethan England, making their generationally transcendent relationship increasingly evident.
S01:E08 - The Volga Boatman
In Tsarist Russia, the Volga boatmen trudge along the water's edge as they pull heavy cargoes up and down the river. One day, as Prince Dimitri and his fiancée, Princess Vera, stop to have their fortunes told at a Tartar camp along the river, they encounter a group of boatmen who are taking a short respite from their arduous work. One of the boatmen, the spirited Feodor, instigates a hostile confrontation with the two aristocrats. Later, when the Revolution breaks out, Feodor assumes a leadership position in the Red Army, and he again encounters Dimitri and Vera... with much higher stakes this time.
