Slipups And Pratfalls Abound In 'The Artist' Blooper Reel

There is a very good chance that The Artist will soon be crowned Best Picture. If nothingĀ  else, you're going to hear more and more about the silent Cannes fave in the weeks leading up to the Oscars.

We've seen a featurette that talked about the creation of the film, which is set in 1927 as silent films are giving way to talkies, and features an actor (Jean Dujardin) who isn't quite able to keep up with the shift. Now a blooper reel has shown up, proving that the comedy didn't always come together in the breezy, seemingly effortless manner seen in the final edit.

Following the style of the film, this reel is silent, accompanied only by the film's score. So if you haven't seen The Artist yet, this will give you a good idea of the general tone and appeal of the movie without giving too much away.

Those who have seen the film, and who marveled at the 'acting' of the dog Uggie, will particularly like the bits where Uggie isn't quite as responsive and on-point as he is in the movie. [Allocine via ComingSoon]
