One of the last grand silent films was also one of Hollywood's first attempts to salute its own past. Marion Davies stars as a young actress who gets a job at a Sennett-like comedy film studio, and later leaves it (and her discoverer/lover, top comic William Haines) behind in the belief she can land more "serious" roles. King Vidor directs; the copious cameos include Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., John Gilbert, William S. Hart, Norma Talmadge, many, many others. 79 min. Standard; Soundtrack: Dolby Digital mono music score. Silent with music score.
