The Justice of the Peace pronounces the county name of Los Angeles as "Anjeliss," as is common nowadays. In the 1930s, English-speaking locals preferred to say it as "Angle-iss", a bit closer to the Spanish sound. To say "Anjeliss" (or "Anjeleez" as was also common) was to be marked as an outsider, until the immigration waves of the 1950s and '60s caused "Anjeliss" to win out over the other forms. See more »

I believe this as one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen. I enjoyed the story, the dialog and above all I enjoyed the atmosphere and the actors. All of them are great but to me Fredric March is outstanding.
Norman/Alfred is a wonderful character: frail, undignified, touchy, weak and able to love Vicki/Esther so much, with all his heart.
Fredric March brings all of it on the screen, providing one of his best performances here.
If you would like to become an actor, I believe you should watch this movie and Mr. March's way of acting. Pay attention to his eyes, his hands, his face and his moves, especially when he interrupts his wife thanking everybody for the Oscar she got and claims he deserves three statues for the worse performances.
He is overcome by himself and starts dying. I just shivered.
To me, this version can't be compared to its remakes. The allure and the fascination of Hollywood have been perfectly represented here, together with an unpleasant and creepy feeling of emptiness.
