When Cecil B. DeMille returned to Paramount Pictures – the studio he helped build – in 1932, he was at a career crossroads. His last two pictures for MGM, Madam Satan (1930) and The Squaw Man (1931), had bombed out at the box office and he was in danger of becoming increasingly irrelevant; the Paramount studios were facing a crisis of their own – the company was in danger of going belly up due to the Great Depression. However, The Sign of the Cross – a return to the territory that DeMille had made his best pictures – would prove to be the proverbial spark to the flame that would reverse the fortunes of both the studio and its director. Released on home video by Universal (the current rights holder), Kino has given the movie its Blu-ray debut.

I think it's great that we're getting all these old DeMille films on Blu-ray, & looking so good too. They're great fun, I have imported them from America, Germany & France, & later this month I'll be buying The Plainsman (1936) from Germany (an all regions release from Universal). My favourite is Unconquered (1947), available from Germany, France & Spain (most of these DeMille films are available in Spain, genuine releases from Universal).
