Charles Starrett

  1. Fredric March,  The Sign of the Cross, 1932.    Director Cecil B DeMille searched his way through    Elissa Landi, Pola Negri, Norma Talmadge, and finally Claudette Colbert for Nero’s sensual wife, the Empress Poppaea. However,  he earlier decided on Adrianne Allen opposite Starrett as Marcus Superbus.  Most of Starrett’s 167 movies were Westerns,. Usually as The Durango Kid. CB had a thing about current, and indeed future cowboy stars – as you will find out in our Special Movies page on The Ten Commandments.
