Trivia

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.


Quotes

George Valentin: Look what's become of you... You've been stupid! You've been proud!
George Valentin: Get back here, you loser!


Goofs

In a hospital scene (1930 or 1931), Calvin Coolidge is pictured in a photo-portrait on a wall. Coolidge left the presidency in 1929. But of course that fact does not imply that his photo-portrait would never be seen on walls.
