The Cat's Meow

Factual error: The movie "Cat's Meow," about a real incident that occurred on William R. Hearst's yacht, includes a scene where a female guest, awakened by a gunshot, is wearing hair clips. Those objects were not available in the 1920s, and even if they were, they are totally ineffectual on her combed-flat hair style.


Charlie Chaplin: Did you really believe I would stay away?
Marion Davies: No, but you should really believe I didn't want you here.

W. R. Hearst: You ever eaten a seagull, Tom?
Thomas Ince: No.
W. R. Hearst: God, they taste awful. Just like eating a crow.

Charlie Chaplin: If you were starving and you had no food, would you eat your shoe?
Marion Davies: What?
Charlie Chaplin: Your shoe. Would you eat it?
Marion Davies: Um, of course I would.
Charlie Chaplin: You would?
Marion Davies: I'd have to boil it first.
Charlie Chaplin: That's funny.
