When Cecil B. DeMille left theater behind, he would begin his career as a director with a Western (and the very first movie ever made in Hollywood), The Squaw Man (1914). Over the course of the next several years, he would turn out several westerns before moving on to scandalous dramas and biblical epics. When he returned to Paramount Pictures in the 1930’s, he also returned to the Western genre a couple more times, with Union Pacific being one of them. Previously released on DVD as part of the Cecil B. DeMille Collection by Universal, Kino has licensed the film for its Blu-ray debut.
