Marion Davies & William Haines star in King Vidor’s Show People (1928), a comedy about small-town girl Davies trying to make it in Hollywood.  This film provides a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse at moviemaking during the silent era, and features cameos from a number of big stars of the day, including Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, and John Gilbert.
