Micky Moore recalled his work on the epic The King of Kings (1927) as one of his most challenging roles as an actor. It was also one of his last lead parts as a child actor. At the time, Moore was 12 years old and played the part of the boy Apostle, Mark. The film is said to have been one of DeMille’s favorite films. With the exception of DeMille’s The Ten Commandments (1923), it was one of his most successful films to date and brought in over $2.6 million. On reverse: "Peter and Mark in the arms of their risen Lord, with John the Beloved looking up at him. (Joseph Striker, Micky Moore, H.B. Warner, Ernest Torrence)."
