Storyline

This Fox comedy with music takes a Hollywood look at Bohemian life as it is lived by artists and models in NYC's Greenwich Village. A lot of it is set against the Village's annual "Illustrator's Ball." Philip Holmes and Knute Olson are two advertising-artists who refuse to let their secretary, Marybell Cobb, pose for hosiery-ads, although she has the perfect leg attributes. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Not the same film
24 February 2007 | by (Henderson, Nv. USA) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure if this is even the same film or not, for the following reasons: Although IMDb shows it as USA, and the cast list has a number of identifiable names, this is the only information available. The entire film is in Cyrillic Russian, with no subtitles, and I don't recognize any of the characters/actors at all. In fact, the VHS package itself is all in Russian, with what seems to be a copyright (?) of 1968, the tape itself appears to be made in Russia. I can't make "heads or tails" of the storyline, and while looking for Marjorie White, there's a young girl in a few scenes who closely resembles Louise Brooks.

The only other Russian-language film I've seen is Battleship Potemkin by Eisenstein, and that one has a storyline to it, with English subtitles. This one seems to be a sort of period melodrama of some sort. I thought I caught Marjorie White's voice in one scene, Ill have to replay it to catch it again, I'm probably wrong.

If there's anyone out there who can read Russian language printing, let me know, I'll forward a photocopy of the package to translate. I'm fairly certain the title may translate into Englsh, but this, too I'm not sure. It may be a purely Soviet home-grown production with a title resembling Golden calf. I just don't know. Can anyone help??

If not, then it may truly BE a "LOST" film, at least to those of us in the west! One more giveaway: The English version runs 70 minutes, this Russian work (?) runs almost 3 hours! DEFINITELY not our Golden Calf!
