The plot: scandal, crime and intrigue take place during the silent movie era in 1920s Hollywood involving some of the most famous stars of the day, including Rudolph Valentino, Clara Bow, Gloria Swanson, Norma Talmadge, Lupe Velez, Fatty Arbuckle, William Desmond Taylor and others.
The filming features locations in and around Hollywood, including the original Rudolph Valentino and Norma Talmadge estates and at the "Magic Castle" in the Hollywood Hills.

Shooting was performed using original hand-cranked movie cameras.
