Premiere of Hell's Angels. Grauman's Chinese Theater. May 24, 1930
The star-creating engine racing at full throttle.
Stars of 1930 cavort in the footage. But in classic Hollywood style, the sound track dissimulates. (Ostensibly recorded at the premiere,"If I had a talking picture of you" dates from 1929, but "Hooray for Hollywood," from 1937.)
