Abstract:

We get behind the camera glimpses of the shooting of the 1928 release Skyscraper. William Boyd and Alan Hale rescue a young woman whose heel is caught in a sewer grating from being crushed by a falling girder. In a studio, we see a romantic scene between Claire Windsor and John Bowers. The film being shot is probably the 1927 release The opening night. The scene shifts to a gala event of some sort, perhaps a real opening night. As stars arrive, they pose for the photographers and wave to their adoring fans.
