The Studio Murder Mystery (1929)
Rupert Borka: No, no, no. That is terrible. Get up.
Richard Hardell: Well, what's the matter?
Rupert Borka: Matter? Well you cannot act. That is all. You do not feel it; you do not think it. Bah!
Richard Hardell: Want me to try again?
Rupert Borka: What for? I told you all week that you cannot act. Then I thought maybe if we came here and rehearsed here alone tonight... but it is useless. Why that dummy has more feeling than you.
Richard Hardell: Ohhh
[throws dummy out of chair and onto floor]
Richard Hardell: Now look here, Borka. Why don't you play ball? You agreed to give this part to the winner of that newspaper contest. Now didn't you?
Rupert Borka: Yes.
Richard Hardell: Yes.
Rupert Borka: Like a fool!
Richard Hardell: Oh, well you just say that because the winner was me and you've always thought I was just a rich man to hang around moving picture people.
Rupert Borka: And you are!
Richard Hardell: No, I'm not either. I've always really wanted to act. And if you weren't the director, old boy I'd be making good right now.
Rupert Borka: You are crazy. You cannot act and you will never learn to act.
