33 Watch | Cecil B. DeMille


Cecil B. DeMille was an actor, filmmaker and director who was born August 12, 1881, in Ashfield, Massachusetts.  His career as a stage actor began in 1900, and concluded with his final film, The Ten Commandments, which was released in 1956.  For that film, he won an academy award; it is also his best selling film of all-time.  Just this past weekend it was aired on ABC in the buildup to Easter. 

Also in his honor, the Golden Globes created a special award known as the 'Golden Globe Cecil B DeMille' award.  If you're a fan of this blog, it won't come by surprise that his last name, or place of birth, have '33 numerology'.
  • Massachusetts = 4+1+1+1+1+3+8+3+1+5+2+2+1 = 33
  • DeMille = 4+5+4+9+3+3+5 = 33
  • Cecil = 3+5+3+9+3 = 23
Cecil B. DeMille died at the curious age of 77, due to "heart complications".  The date of his death was January 21, 1959.  You could say Cecil B. DeMille was a 'pioneer of 33 in the movie industry'.
