The Life and Death of 9413: a Hollywood Extra is a 1928 American short silent film which tells the story of a man who comes to Hollywood to become a star, only to fail and be dehumanized (he is identified by the number 9413 written on his forehead), after which he dies and goes on Heaven, where the number is removed. It stars Voya George, Adriane Marsh and Jules Raucourt.
The film was written by Robert Florey, and directed by Florey and Slavko Vorkapich. It was photographed by Gregg Toland, later famed for his cinematography on films such as Citizen Kane and Grapes of Wrath.
The film has been deemed "culturally significant" by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. The film has been restored and released on two DVD collections Unseen Cinema: Early American Avant Garde Film 1894-1941 and Avant-Garde: Experimental Cinema of the 1920's and 1930's.
