According to the DVD, "The Artist" was completely filmed in Hollywood.

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.
The opening credits are styled after the style of opening used in the 1920s and 1930s, complete with technical credits shown the way they would have been then.
