The Artist Scene 13

Scene 13

Scene 13

  • The year is 1929. George is swashbuckling away on set (with a co-star who looks a lot like his chauffeur) when his director pulls him aside to show him "something."
  • They sit in a dark room amidst the murk of Zimmer's cigar smoke and watch Zimmer's girlfriend (George's demanding co-star from earlier) play Juliet on screen. She is speaking (yes, speaking!) into a microphone.
  • George, still in his Zorro gear, laughs and covers his eyes. The music takes a foreboding turn.
  • "If that's the future," George says as he leaves, "you can have it!"
