The second time Berlyn walks into the amphitheater, there's a smudge on the
camera lens (visible on the far left of the screen). After a few seconds, the
smudge is covered by the shadows from the trees. See more »
It occurred to me that in many ways Rasputin, the advisor and friend to the last Empress of Russia, resembled Joan Crawford.

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.
