Main interest is some film studio scenes
2 January 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Bessie has again run away from her proper and domineering mother and her bumbling father to go to the big city, where she claims that her parents are poor and mistreat her to get a job as a secretary for screenwriter Thomas Graal. She runs away from his kisses and embraces and is forced to go back to her parent's home by family servants. Thomas Graal has run out of ideas, so he embroiders Bessie's tall tales to create a screenplay and insists that Bessie must be found to play the leads with him in order to meet her again.

The bulk of the picture is a series of flashbacks and fantasies based on Thomas Graal's script and on his imaginings and so can be distracting. The comedy is mostly thin, but some of the jokes are standard in backstage at a movie studio picture.
