I’m inclined to like William C. DeMille for saying of his more famous brother, “Cecil has a habit of biting off more than he can chew, and then chewing it.”

But really, opening his 0ddy titled 1920 drama CONRAD IN QUEST OF HIS YOUTH in such a way rather defeats my ability to face another Sunday. Back to bed it is, then.
