Storyline

Angela comes to Hollywood with only two things: Her dream to become a movie star, and Grandpa. She leaves an Aunt, a brother, Grandma, and her longtime boyfriend back in Centerville. Despite seeing major movie stars around every corner, and knocking on every casting office door in town, at the end of her first day she is still unemployed. To her horror, when she arrives back at their hotel, she finds that Grandpa has been cast in a movie by William DeMille and quickly becomes a star during the ensuing weeks. Her family, worried that Angela and Grandpa are getting into trouble, come to Hollywood to drag them back home. In short order Aunt, Grandma, brother, boyfriend and even the parrot become superstars, but Angela is still unemployed... Written by Marta Dawes <smdawes@home.com>

Trivia

One of the film's few serious moments is a cameo by Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle, whose career was essentially ended in 1921 by criminal charges (even though he was acquitted). He makes a rare appearance here as a sadly unemployed actor, whose name is not mentioned. See more »

Hollywood (1923) -- Tragic Loss
28 June 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was one of the first Hollywood films about Hollywood, the story of a girl who dreams of becoming a big movie star, only to find herself unemployed and her family members accidentally getting movie roles. Adored by critics, it gave audiences the delightful surprise cameo appearances of literally dozens of the biggest Hollywood stars at that time, playing themselves. The list is long, from Mary Pickford , Jack Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks Sr. Charles Chaplin, Gloria Swanson, Mary Astor, Cecil B. DeMille, even Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, who was recently disgraced from a scandal. Interestingly, Hope Drown who played the lead role of Angela Whitaker, the girl seeking stardom, this is the only movie she was ever in. The loss of this film is nothing less than a tragic one for fans and historians of silent cinema and one can only hope a copy survives and resurfaces.
