A silent movie star meets a young dancer, but the arrival of talking pictures sends their careers in opposite directions.
James Cromwell remarked that his performance in the film wasn't really a silent one, as all of his scenes involve dialogue rather than pantomime. He claimed that he played the role like he would any other, speaking his lines out loud.
I won't talk! I won't say a word!
The dateline on the "WHO'S THAT GIRL?" edition of Variety reads, "LOS ANGELES, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1927," making it a rare triple blooper. In reality, that particular date fell on a Tuesday, not a Sunday. Additionally, the cost of a real-life Variety from September 7, 1927 was still 20 cents, so the date of September 6 on the prop paper is at odds with its emblazoned 25-cent price. Lastly, the Los Angeles version Daily Variety, with its square focus on the film industry, was not published until 1933 (coincidentally, on September 6). All prior editions had come from New York and were so labeled.
The following film is presented in its original 1.33:1 aspect ratio, as intended by the filmmakers.
