another great king vidor feature and some fantastic mimicry/comedy by the delightful marion davies. there are some early hollywood cameos and some very humorous satire if you enjoy can understand the references

Silly comedy with zany energy, if not big laughs. But Marion Davies is certainly a great movie star that sells the material.

Very cute silent comedy. I never saw any Marion Davies' films before but I can see why she was famous in her day. There's a scene where you can even see Mr Charlie Chaplin asking her character for an autograph.

Amusing. Marion Davies is great. Yay for TCM for playing some silent films.

This is one of the few silent films I've ever seen, and probably the best. The genre lends itself to caricatures since the actors can't make use of any inflection to make their performances more realistic, and this plot about a southern belle coming to Hollywood to be a famous actress is a perfect story for the style. The characters are exaggerated but funny and the whole film gives you that nostalgic feeling for the Hollywood of old, really old. This film will turn 80 years old this year, yet the story is still relevant and funny. B

I'm a suck for movies about Hollywood, and this is one that I can't get enough. Marion Davies does her perfect blend of comedy and drama and she steals my heart every damn time.

Why has no one said anything about this one? It's awesome.
