C.B. Gets His Due — 5 Comments

  1. Ah, books! Was there really a time when I read at least one a week…sometimes more? Now, I get sleepy so quickly, it takes me forever!! But this one sounds like a must.

    Really loving your posts!

  2. Dear Jim

    You wouldn't have your writings on DeMille available from that period. I am writing a PhD on DeMille and changing attitudes towards the man. I would be very interested in looking at it.

  4. Kevin, my swipes at DeMille came in the course of reviewing Russell's The Devils when I was a student at CSU Sacramento; the review was published in the State Hornet (campus paper) for 10/3/71. I do indeed still have the review, and would be happy to share it if you think it'll help (must say, while my opinion of DeMille has changed, my opinion of Russell hasn't). The "sanctimonious old humbug" line was written for the Sacramento News & Review before the days of online archives; I'm afraid I can't lay my hands on that one (it's around here somewhere, but…). For The Devils, send me your e-mail and I'll send you a Word doc transcript of my review.

    Thanks for stopping by; hope you return often.
