Intolerance for errors?
Oscar speculation underway for “Inception”
By cutting among three simultaneous dreams, film editor Lee Smith’s work harkens to the granddaddy of bravura editing, Cecil B. DeMille’s “Intolerance.” Even New York magazine critic David Edelstein, who found a lot to criticize in the film, said of Smith, “He’s all but sewn up this year’s editing Oscar.”
Cecil B. DeMille had nothing to do with the film “Intolerance”.
Your reporter is confusing him with D.W. Griffith.
