Universal Studios is the location that is visited in the third entry in the series. I will just say right now that the highlight here is a reporting walking around the sets of THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME as Lon Chaney shows him a few things including how he walks up the sets. It should be noted that Chaney is without his make up. Other things seen in this episode include Baby Peggy being directed by Jess Robbins as they prepare for a scene. Mary Philbin is seen being directed by Irvin Cummings and we also get Emmett Corrigan not knowing how to dress on the set.
Other actors/entertainers we see include Max Davidson, Margaret Morris, Neeley Edwards, Bert Roach, King Baggott, Hobart Henley, Hoot Gibson, Ed Sedgwick, Pete Morrison, Bob Hill and others. Again, most of these names have been forgotten over the years but if you're a film buff and a fan of silent cinema this is a must see since we get some really cool behind-the-scenes footage that is quite rare today. The stuff with Chaney was certainly the highlight but it was also nice seeing Baby Peggy on the set before shooting started.
