Myrt has a show chock full of talented performers that deserves to be on Broadway, but can't raise the necessary money.

Clip from this movie was run in background of the movie house scene of "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou." The young actress in the film pulls off her skirt and shows how flexible and acrobatic she is...much to the joy of the lecherous Hollywood director. It was scandalous and perfect for 30's Hollywood. The scene with George Clooney has prisoners brought in to watch the film. The guard blowers a whistle to signal the prisoners to sit. The guard says "enjoy your picture show" and the film starts up.

[hands him a feathery headdress

And don't wear it.
