She's described by director Jacques Audiard as "a diver," someone who "throws herself into a role head first.

"Show People," the 1928 satire of Hollywood, could be considered the great-grandfather of last year's "The Artist," the Oscar-winning homage to the early days of filmmaking. The fast-paced comedy, starring Marion Davies and directed by King Vidor, spoofs the top stars of the day (many of whom make cameos in the film, including John Gilbert and director John Ford). It screens Thursday at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater.
