I’ve been the most fired director in pictures . . . I was hired and fired, two fires to every hire. Finally they ran out of directors. So they let me be one. I got fired some more. Then Gilbert Seldes, when I was quite permanently fired, wrote a blurb in which he referred to one of my pictures as a “subtle achievement”. Sennett saw it, found out what it meant and hired me back again.

This installment of our Egyptian Theatre 90th anniversary screening series did not premiere at the Egyptian; instead, the film features a glimpse of the Egyptian in 1941. It serves as the site of the premiere of the film within the film!
