  Last night I watched Selznick and Cukor's first attempt at "A Star
is Born," "What Price Hollywood," from 1932.  Slow motion is briefly
used in the suicide sequence towards the end.  I recommend this one,
for the relative openness of it's pre-code plot, and for the
interesting editing, not to mention it's mythmaking about Hollywood.
