When Bill is showing Goldie the house, they sit down and in a close-up Bill mentions settling down. In the next wider shot, both seem to be saying a line as their lips are moving, but their voices are not heard. This may be the result of the TCM print, as this occurs very close to a reel change.

There were a lot of cynical movies made about Hollywood. The various versions of A STAR IS BORN are the best known of them. GOLDIE GETS ALONG is a lesser work.
Lily Damita is a French girl stuck in New Jersey. Thinking she has a chance in Hollywood, she breaks with her obnoxious foster family, abandons her fiancé, Charles Morton, and strikes out for Tinseltown. She uses various questionable tactics to achieve her goal -- the Production Code had not come into full force when this movie was released -- albeit nothing that would offend Joseph Breen beyond repair. Eventually she winds up in Hollywood, to discover that her struggles have only begun.
While there are some interesting bits and pieces in this movie (keep an eye out for Walter Brennan as a stammering waiter), this movie never aspires to be more than a programmer, leaving its leads to carry it along its over-edited length. Alas, they don't succeed very well. Miss Damita's career would end later in the decade, when she would retire to the career of being Errol Flynn's wife. This would be Mr. Morton's last major credit in any movie, although he would continue for decades as an uncredited extra.
