I understand that this film was not a big commercial success but DeMille evidently figured out the parts that worked and the parts that didn't for later reference. Regarding dancers, DeMille did get plenty of use out of Theodore Kosloff who was a ballet dancer and who choreographed C.B.'s films from this time that had dance numbers.
I agree with everything Bob says, although not with his incorrect punctuation of "its".
