Storyline

A once-great silent film director, unable to make the transition to the new talkies, lives as a near-hermit in his Hollywood home, making cheap, silent sex films, and suffering in the knowledge of his sexual impotence, and apathetic about the plans to demolish his home to make way for a motorway. His producer and his producer's girlfriend come by to see how he is doing (and to supply heroin to the actress as her payment). The girlfriend stays to watch them filming, and is deeply impressed by his methods. When the actress goes to the bathroom, and dies there of an overdose, the girlfriend takes her place in the film. Then the producer returns... Written by Steven Pemberton <Steven.Pemberton@cwi.nl>

Goofs

Sitting at piano, Boy Wonder plays song Moonglow, written in 1934. The movie takes place at least three or four years earlier (characters repeatedly talk about a then-unknown actor named Clark Gable, already a big star by time song was written). See more »

Quotes

Big Mac: I swear you do it just to rile me, pure and simple.
Boy Wonder: Nothing pure, old sport, is ever simple.

Crazy Credits

The end credits are shown in black-and-white, against a backdrop of a silk cloth. It is also grainier and scratched in spots compared to the rest of the film. It is very reminiscent of the credits of vintage 30's melodramas. See more »

Brilliant performance by Dreyfuss
12 May 2000 | by (Las Flores, CA) – See all my reviews

This is the performance, Wonder Boy in Inserts, along with his other early performances (Duddy Kravitz, Hello Down There, American Graffiti, Dillinger) that won the Oscar for Dreyfuss in Goodbye Girl. A particularly intense characterization that rates amongst the best acting performances of all time. To bad the film did not do better at the box office, and is never shown on TV or available on tape.
