Storyline

Thelma, who came to Hollywood from Joplin to be a star, is ready to go home. She and her pal Patsy are packing up and packing it in. Then, through Patsy's deviousness, Thelma gets a call to come to the studio immediately to audition for a costume drama. Several mishaps later, Thelma leaves for the shoot, annoyed at her clumsy pal. Deaf to criticism and dismissal, Patsy follows, arriving in time to make a shambles of her best-friend's one chance at success. Will anything go right, or is it right back to Joplin?

The Girl Friends
15 August 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

One of the best of the 'Girl Friends' series starring Todd and Kelly after Zasu Pitts dropped out of the series. On the brink of leaving Hollywood forever, Thelma Todd gets to do an important screen test, and the studio is full of comedy veterans doing their shticks, including the always-enjoyable Billy Gilbert doing his famous sneezing routine -- he would later be called on to do the voice of Sneezy in SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARVES.
