The Artist 2011
Plot: Silent movie star George Valentin bemoans the coming era of talking pictures and fades into oblivion and self-destruction, but finds sparks with Peppy Miller, a young dancer lighting up talkies like no one else.
Story: Outside a movie premiere, enthusiastic fan Peppy Miller literally bumps into the swashbuckling hero of the silent film, George Valentin. The star reacts graciously and Peppy plants a kiss on his cheek as they are surrounded by photographers. The headlines demand: "Who's That Girl?" and Peppy is inspired to audition for a dancing bit-part at the studio. However as Peppy slowly rises through the industry, the introduction of talking-pictures turns Valentin's world upside-down.
Did you know: This film is only the second ever silent film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. The first was Wings which was the very first film to win the award for Best Picture in the Oscar's inaugural year. As Wings won just two Oscars, for Best Picture, Production and Best Effects, Engineering Effects, The Artist is the first ever silent film to win Oscars for Best Director, Best Score, Best Costume and Best Actor.
