  1. SpacePirate's rating of the film Show People

    Another excellent pairing of Davies and Vidor, who made some of the last great films of the silent era. This is a great film showcasing how films were made during this era also, and has a veritable who's who of silent film star cameos including greats like Gilbert and Fairbanks. The story of success going to a newcomers head is all too real, and sadly seems to happen to many of our stars. Just a great film. 4.5 stars

  2. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Show People

    I suppose it is one of the very few silent Hollywood comedies not done by Keaton/Chaplin that are worth watching. Silly, but a charming ode to cinema.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Show People

    Meilleur film de Marion Davies qui y confirme son talent de comique. Directement inspiré de la tumultueuse carrière de Gloria Swanson. Une rareté !

  4. Aardsy's rating of the film Show People

  5. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Show People

    It was great seeing this projected in 16mm from Yale Film archive with live musical accompaniment by Donald Sosin and Joanna Seaton.

  6. Log Lady's rating of the film Show People

    I prefer Vidor's more serious works, but this is a fairly charming film about filmmaking. It's interesting how Peggy's illusions and conceptions about dramas make her boring, conventional, and uptight, whereas Billy has more of a grounded effect on her. Chaplin's cameo is one of the great ones in cinema, so funny.

  7. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Show People

    King Vidor es un adelantado. Los cameos y la hábil forma de construir esa fascinación por el consumo artístico. Si bien hay una sátira sobre cómo las estrellas (fantasías de muchos) poseen esa careta de falsedad, en "Show people" se encarga de humanizarlos. No en vano vemos a un Chaplin humildemente solicitando la firma de una actriz de poca monta o un Douglas Fairbanks jugando durante la merienda.Eso sí, hay encanto

  8. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film Show People

    Lighter version of The Artist. Chaplin cameo is funny. Miss Davies' overacting and mimics bothered me.

  9. Andreia Ribeiro's rating of the film Show People

    Davies's Swanson impression is priceless.

  10. MarcH's rating of the film Show People

    Hilarious and touching. Marion Davies had a great gift for comedy.

  11. Erik Gregersen's rating of the film Show People

    Best celebrity cameos ever.
