Cecil B. De Mille (1881-1959), Motion Picture Director and Producer. In 1913 he joined Jesse L. Lasky and Samuel Goldwyn in forming the Jesse L. Lasky Feature Play Company to produce motion pictures in Hollywood. His first film The Squaw Man was the first full-length feature made in Hollywood. It contributed to the establishment of film as a serious narrative and dramatic medium. He made several innovations in his early works; perhaps the most consequential was the practice of publicizing the leading players. With The Ten Commandments, 1923, he began a series of movies produced on lavish scale and in the spectacular style that was to become his trademark. He later made several movies under his own DeMille Pictures, Metro-Golwyn-Mayer, and in 1932 moved to Paramount. In all, he produced more than 70 films.

A stock certificate is issued by businesses, usually companies. A stock is part of the permanent finance of a business. Normally, they are never repaid, and the investor can recover his/her money only by selling to another investor. Most stocks, or also called shares, earn dividends, at the business's discretion, depending on how well it has traded. A stockholder or shareholder is a part-owner of the business that issued the stock certificates.
