An ambtious filmmaker sets out to make an avant-garde film but soon learns the only way he can secure financing is if he shows Jessica Hahn's breasts. Also, two old women are magically transformed into young starlets.
John Wayne lived in the apartment building shown in the film in the 1930s. Built in 1925, it was also the "lovenest" of Gloria Swanson and Joseph Kennedy. See more »
When the baby is holding the Moe Howard key chain, there should have been a close-up of this prop in the baby's hand. The director forgot to film this, so the insert of the Moe Howard key chain is a jpeg taken with a digital camera. See more »
As I said to Jill Bennett on "The Nanny," always make love to your props.

If you are an aficionado of earlier Hollywood, this movie is great!
If you are an aficionado of classic movies and actors and actresses from the earlier days of Hollywood or just like movies, you will find Hollywood Mouth most enjoyable. The glimpses of pictures of movie stars and their homes are fun. Director Jordan Mohr has a good eye for Hollywood the place.
Hollywood Mouth tells the story of Berlyn Ferlinghetti being asked to help two strangers, Camille and Gary, sell a Faberge egg. Director Jordan Mohr cleverly weaves interesting facts about Faberge eggs into the script such as they were originally gifts for Czar Nicolas' mother, no one knows how many eggs were made. And did you know that "some were sold at Bullock's- Wilshire' where the stars shopped'"? In the film Berlyn speculates that perhaps the egg might even have been stolen. She takes the Peter Lorre mask to a F/X technician to be duplicated. It is fascinating to watch the process as the technician goes through the intricate steps.
The movie is filled with wonderful photos of people such as James Dean, Peter Lorre, Cary Grant, James Cagney and Joan Crawford. Some of the homes pictured include Gary Cooper's first home that belonged to his parents, the home where Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner lived when she died as well as the homes of so many more. Director Mohr ends the film with a surprise.
