DeMille in relation to the movie The Crusades; his wife Elizabeth's nervous breakdown; his decision to sell the house in which he was born in Saratoga Springs, New York; Marc Connelly's divorce from wife Madeline, who was rumored to have an affair with Marc's best friend, Bob Sherwood, whom she eventually married.
