Peppy Miller !

Get Somthing nice for my wife.

To make it up to her.

With all your nonsense,

they don't mention our movie until page 5 !

Where are you going, Miss?

We have a picture to shoot.

"A GERMAN AFFAIR"

DRESSING ROOMS:

If you want to be an actress,

you need to have something the others don't.

I have something to show you.

May I have my chair ?!

Hey, you're not Napoleon.

You're just an extra !

SOUND TES Constance Gray

in

Romeo & Juliet

Don't laugh, George !

That's the future.

If that's the future,

you can have it !

You and I belong to another era, George.

The world is talking now.

People want new faces,

talking faces.

I wish it wasn't like this, but the public

wants fresh meat and the public is never wrong.

I'm the one people come to see.

They never needed to hear me !

Make your talking movies. I'll make a great movie.

And it's not like I need you for that !

Fresh meat...

What a coincidence, I was just thinking

about you. I signed with Kinograph !

Maybe now we'll do

anorher picture together !

Toys !

I'm not a puppet, I'm an artist !

PEPPY MILLER:

The girl you'll Love to Love

We have to talk, George

Why do you refuse to talk ?

I'm unhappy, George.

So are millions of us.

Your movie doesn't come out until tomorrow

and you're already Hollywood's new sweetheart !

How do you explain that ?

I don't know. Maybe because I talk

and the audience can hear me.

People are tired of old actors mugging

at the camera to be understood.

Out with the old, in with the new.

Make way for the young !

That's life !

I've made way for you.

STOCK MARKE CRASH

It looks like we've gone bust.

Unless the movie is a big hit...

Farewell Norma I never loved you.

Beauty Spot

PEPPY MILLER:

It's over George, you have two weeks to collect

your souvenirs together and get out of the hose.

Doris

P.S you should go see Beauty Spot

Hello. I wanted to talk to you. I...

I just saw Tears of Love.

And you want a refund ?

Not too much mugging ?

No. I... I'm sorry about last night.

I didn't mean what I said...

But you were right.

Make way for the young...

It's an honor to meet you.

My father is a big fan.

OK. We're going now.

I'll call you soon.

Take me home.

I want to be alone.

PAWN SHOP:

How long has it been since I

last paid you, Clifton ?

One year, sir.

You're fired.

I'm not kidding, Clifton.

You're fired.

Keep the car. And find

yourself another job.

I don't want another job.

To Night AUCTION of famed

Hollywood actor George Valentin

Congratulations ! It's all sold,

you've got nothing left !

GUARDIAN ANGEL:

The new PEPPY MILLER motion picture !

Excuse me, may I

trouble you one moment ?

If only he could talk !

Look what's become of you...

You've been stupid !

You've been proud !

GET BACK HERE, YOU LOSER !!!

Oh my God ! That's

George Valentin !

I'll get my car !

I'll say one thing, he

owes his life to that dog !

Film Actor Survives Fire

We're ready. Go get Miss Miller.

He's out of danger.

He needs rest now.

He was clutching this.

It was hard to get it away from him.

You think he could rest
