The Road to Yesterday
The Road to Yesterday is a 1925 American silent film directed by Cecil B. DeMille. Prints of the film reportedly survive at George Eastman House and in private collections. The film is significant because it was Cecil B. DeMille's first release from his new production company, DeMille Pictures Corporation. It was also upcoming actor William Boyd's first starring role. In DeMille's next picture, The Volga Boatman, which was a tremendous success, he cast Boyd as the solo leading man.
