A silent movie star meets a young dancer, but the arrival of talking pictures sends their careers in opposite directions.
The first Academy Award Best Picture winner to be presented in a 4:3 aspect ratio since Marty (1955) won this Oscar fifty-six years earlier.
Make way for the young!
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 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.
