A rare classic musical saved from destruction.
28 September 2001 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

According to the video intro to "365 Days in Hollywood", the print was taken from the only one surviving. An early film for the fairly recently deceased Alice Faye, it was made before she had proven herself to be more than just another Jean Harlow knock-off. After Harlow's death, she was allowed to be more than just a pretty face, and was able to show her own personality.

The story focuses on a pretty young girl (Faye) who enrols in Grant Mitchell and James Dunn's school for hopeful movie actors, and ends up becoming a musical star. Predictable, yes, but filled with some fun comic character bits, and a great production number that casts Faye in a variety of world-wide stereotypes. Not as notorious as Al Jolson's "Heaven" number from "Wonder Bar", but laughingly tacky in spots.

This film is worth a look for early Alice Faye (possibly her earliest film available on video), and also includes four Faye movie trailers at the very end. This is a collector's treasure!
