What if legendary Hollywood director Cecil B. DeMille discovered the secret of time travel?
That could explain how the visionary filmmaker recreated the historical accuracy of such epics as The Squaw Man, The King of Kings, Sign of the Cross, The Crusades, and The Ten Commandments. He was the first director on the west coast to use artificial lights and even parted the Red Sea in glorious Technicolor, not once but twice.
Something happened a hundred years ago.
In 1913, C.B. DeMille knew nothing about making pictures and Hollywood was little more than orange groves and desert. But after a brief visit to the West Orange, New Jersey laboratory of inventor Thomas Edison, DeMille pawned the family silver and rushed out west. From a rented horse barn, C.B. DeMille along with former glove salesman Sam Goldwyn and theater producer Jesse Lasky made the first feature film and transformed Hollywood into the motion picture capitol of the world. The Lasky-DeMille Barn eventually became part of Paramount Pictures Studios. The rest is history. Or is there more to the story?

Could Cecil B. DeMille be the famous “man in a dress with a cell phone” revealed in the 1928 promotional clip of Charlie Chaplin’s film, “The Circus?” that recently went viral over the internet? Time traveler video
Imagine Cecil B. DeMille racing through time as he captured images and artifacts from the past and future. Could DeMille actually have witnessed such events as the parting of the Red Sea or the resurrection of Christ? What if he actually traveled into the future and brought back future technology to make his spectacular special effects?
Before his death in 1959, DeMille was working on a film known only as “Project X.” Many scholars believe that this Project X held the key to DeMille’s revelation of the future.
Is time travel really possible?
According to theoretical physicist Professor Ronald Mallett at the University of Connecticut, time travel is possible using light to bend the space-time continuum. Mallett, whose groundbreaking research based on Einstein’s theory of relativity is documented in his book, “Time Traveler: A Scientists Personal Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality.”
Will Cecil B. DeMille’s time-traveling adventures eventually make it to the big screen? According to unnamed Hollywood insiders, the closely-guarded project may already be in development. But only time will tell.
