Strange Hollywood comedy about what it takes to get a head in tinsel town
Weird Hollywood comedy about a young girl who tries to make a name for herself in Hollywood, meets a nice guy and then finds success as the owner of a dog that makes it big in the movies.
Funny but really strange. The humor and the performances often border on deranged (and I don't mean that in a good way). There were times when I didn't know if it was a comedy or not (though I suppose not knowing whether this was a comedy or drama going in didn't help). At other times I didn't know what type of comedy it wanted to be as it shifted gears through several styles (slapstick,screwball,punny) all at once. There are several great actors in it, Frank Pangborn, Charles Middleton (uncredited) and Frank Morgan who give it their all and make it fun to watch even if you get the feeling that they weren't too sure about the material either.
Its worth a try if you're in the mood for an off beat comedy, but I don't know what you'll make of it, I'm not sure what I did.
