“The Terror” was the first horror movie released with sound. It got really, really bad reviews when it was released in 1928. We’ll have to trust the reviewers, because the movie is now a “lost film,” with only still images from the film surviving.

A few years ago, comments I read on IMDb led me to believe that one of the convicted killers of Hollywood star Ramon Novarro was commenting on the very murder he had committed — in a Ramon Novarro forum! At the time, he was in year 20 of a 60-year prison term (for an unrelated crime). It kinda creeped me out. He’s typing from inside the house!
A supine genius who had accomplished more by age 24 than… almost everyone.
Hollywood stars have always had to do silly things for the sake of publicity….
Hollywood poster artists are responsible for much of a movie’s attraction. In fact, I love these fantastic posters so much I don’t even really need to see the movie. See a whole bunch of promotional artwork for “Dracula’s Daughter” at the link.

What a great promo poster for a movie meant to be a follow-up to “Wings” but which was never actually made.
