A Vitaphone Short Subject.

A look at THE MOVIE ALBUM reveals stars from yesterday, but not always at their best & brightest.

This little film takes a somewhat supercilious look at sequences from old silent films, showing that even by 1931 they were considered by some within the movie industry to be passé. While a few celebrities are treated with respect - Sir Charles Chaplin, Wally Reid and the legendary John Bunny - others, such as Norma Shearer, Lillian Gish & Lionel Barrymore are gently ridiculed.
