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?

Maid in Hollywood (1934)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Hal Roach comedy has Patsy Kelly and Thelma Todd playing best friends who are about to leave Hollywood when neither of them can catch a break. Kelly hears of an actress about to get to a screen test so she locks her in a closet so that Todd can go in her place. All is going well until Kelly shows up on the set and causes chaos. I've never really warmed up to this duo but this film here is certainly better than some that I've seen. The biggest problem I've had with the series is the screen persona of Kelly, which seems to be obnoxious and loud. As far as a performance goes I'd say she's good but perhaps she's too good because I really, really find her too obnoxious to the point where I just want her to go away. Todd on the other hand delivers a few nice laughs and the duo do work well together at least. The best scene is somewhat of a pre-code moment when Todd gets her dress caught in a suitcase and must take it off, revealing her in her slip.
