A background of the talkies, and his earliest experiments (Hollywood Revue, and the disastrous His Glorious Night and Redemption) in 1929 and '30. Background on early studio "revues." Early signs from the press and MGM that things are not going well, and Gilbert is no longer worth his new salary. In 1929, Gilbert marries-and quickly separates from-Broadway star Ina Claire.
