Show People

Last night I watched "Show People" starring Marion Davies. It's a silent film from 1928, and I was surprised because it was actually very watchable. The plot was relevant for today, and it was actually very funny. The star, Marion Davies, reminds me of the photographer Cindy Sherman. Davies can look so different [her photos are below] in each roll. Cindy Sherman is a modern photographer who creates film stills for movies that don't actually exist. She also has the ability to look really different in each roll she creates.
