Show People (1928) - Who's That Little Guy? Maybe the most obvious cameo gag possible at the time, still funny, Peggy (Marion Davies) and Billy (William Haines) leave the screening of her comic-hit first picture (Harry Gribbon her director), catch a trailer for another King Vidor film, then meet Chaplin outside, in Show People, 1928.
Show People (1928) - Miss Pepoire Is Fatigued New comedy star Peggy Pepper (Marion Davies), struggling in her first dramatic picture, is persuaded by leading man Andre (Paul Ralli) that she needs to meet better people, including Louella Parsons, columnist for the newspaper chain run by Davies' consort William Randolph Hearst, in Show People, 1928.
