at my house ?

I have to be on the set at nine o'clock.

We're shooting a very important scene.

Just think of it ! SPARKLE OF LOVE,

starring George Valentin and Peppy Miller

George is a silent movie actor.

He's a nobody now.

What are you doing ?

I won't work anymore.

It's either him or me.

What I mean is, it's him AND me !

Or it's neither of us !

Hey, I'm blackmailing you !

Get it ?

All right, send him the damn screenplay.

I work for Miss Miller now.

Once again, she's looking out for you.

Beware of your pride, if I may say so sir.

Miss Miller is a good person, believe me.



I feel so bad. I only wanted to help you,

take care of you...

If only you would let me help you,

George Valentin.

It's impossible, Peppy.

I'm washed up. No one wants to see me speak.

There is one thing we could try.

Trust me.

Perfect !


Would you give me just one more?

With pleasure
