Trivia

Daffy's "splice" film borrows its title card from Gold Is Where You Find It (1938), a movie produced by Warner Bros. that same year. See more »

Goofs

Von Hamburger lays down the reel of his film, which is in a green spool, next to I.M. Stupendous' desk. Daffy replaces it with his own film, in a gray spool. In the next shot, the spool is still green until Von Hamburger picks it up, then it becomes gray. See more »

Cartoons are where you find them.
5 September 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In this short cartoon, a tensed-up director is trying to complete a movie, but Daffy Duck comes up with several ways to delay it, including bullets in a camera. One gets the feeling that the creative team behind "Daffy Duck in Hollywood" was probably poking fun at Hollywood. But even ignoring that, we get a real surprise once we see the finished movie.

So, this is partly a look at old-style Hollywood (especially the old-style editing), but it remains entertaining in the 21st century. Motion pictures really are our best entertainment.

A real treat, isn't it? Yes sir, yes sir, yes sir, ye-e-e-e-s sir!
