A silent movie star meets a young dancer, but the arrival of talking pictures sends their careers in opposite directions.
The role of Jack the dog was actually played by three matching Jack Russell Terriers: Uggie, Dash, and Dude, although the lead dog Uggie did the majority of scenes. All three dogs were colored before the filming began, made to look more alike.
Perfect! Beautiful! Could you give me just one more?

It is correct that the SMPTE leader shown did not come into use until television, but the writer says it should be Academy leader (Start..11..10..etc). This was not put into use until after 1930. The earliest sound films had a "Start" frame, but then just 12 feet of black film until the picture began.
The following film is presented in its original 1.33:1 aspect ratio, as intended by the filmmakers.
