  • David O. Selznick wanted Clara Bow for the role of Mary Evans, but she turned it down when she was offered more money from Fox.
  • Max Carey was modelled after Lowell Sherman himself, a known alcoholic, as well as silent film director Marshall Neilan and actor 'Barrymore, John' (who was Sherman's brother-in-law at the time).

    The plot of "A Star Is Born" (1937; remade in 1954 and 1976) closely resembles that of What Price Hollywood?; both titles were produced by David O. Selznick. RKO considered filing a plagiarism suit against Selznick International Pictures.
