Scene 6

(The sign was changed to read "Hollywood" in 1949, to reflect the tourist district rather than the housing development that Hollywoodland originally referred to.)
  • Mystery Girl arrives at Kinograph Studios, looking bright eyed. She waits to audition as an extra and reads her paper dramatically, hoping that people will recognize her from the front page.
  • But who is that girl?
  • "The name's Peppy Miller!" she announces with a wink and a skirt flounce after acing her dance audition. Peppy indeed.
