During the party when Chick sees Tommy chatting up Fay, he is not smoking, but in a wide shot, he's taking a cigarette from his mouth. He's also holding a glass of wine which disappears in his close-up. See more »
I saw this film some years ago before Kenneth Moore sadly passed away. Unfortunately he could not do the story justice as the film, due mainly to time I believe, did not portray the character of Nathaniel (Chick) Bird, accurately. It was not able to relay the relationships between Chick and Prout nor with the Twins let alone with the hospital where he worked as a hospital porter before he took on a staring role. Nor did the film show how he created a character and gave the producers of a new film a 'Type' as they called him. Nor did it really display how he and his friend Julian who did go to Hollywood, had been. Nor how he eventually settled with his Stardom and fame and his ever growing love for the woman who changed his life. The book by Douglas Hayes, which sadly is no longer in print. But it is a story that should be re-created in a much more in-depth film that depicts a character which sadly the late Kenneth Moore should never have played.
