Storyline

Vaudevillians supporting the musical efforts of aging Hollywood star Diane de Valle decide to head for Tinseltown themselves when de Valle's high salary and low drawing power cancel the revue. Managing to land roles in a de Valle musical movie, perky Peggy is rescued from the chorus line by the tricks of her boyfriend Jack, who uses bravado to usurp de Valle's role in favor of Peggy, who is more suited to the bouncy musical. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

A Lot of fun at the Fox Lot
6 August 2003 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

They may be trite, but these behind-the-scenes getting into movies stories are a lot of fun--especially when we see a typical 1935 Fox soundstage, a 30s laundry plant, a typical 30s neighborhood theatre and a long streetcar sequence played by Mitchell & Durant.

Ray Walker later appeared on various 50s TV shows, but never made it big in Hollywood. Great supporting cast includes Hattie McDaniel, Bebe Daniels in her last US picture and Rosina Lawrence, who was working at Hal Roach Studios at the time as the Little Rascals school teacher.

Am I imagining things, or do I see the Nicholas Brothers dance briefly in the finale?
