Trivia

The cartoon version of Bette Davis that is seen entering the Warmer Brothers studio lot talking to herself says "So, you say I'm mean to you. You say I'm mad, cruel, domineering. Well, you're right. I'm all this - and heaven too". All This, and Heaven Too (1940) was a big Bette Davis blockbuster from 6 years earlier. See more »

'Home Of Fame, Fortune & Lauren Bacall'
5 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You can always tell in the first 30 seconds when you're looking at an early version of Daffy Duck: he makes this stupid whoo-hoo noise and bounces around the scenery for a few seconds. They stopped doing that after the first few years. Even though Daffy was always "hyper," this noise must have annoyed a number of people so they stopped incorporating it in his character.

At any rate, Daffy is in Hollywood, "home of fame, fortune and Lauren Bacall!" Speaking of names, anyone who is a fan of classic movies should enjoy this cartoon as Daffy sneaks into "Warmer Brothers" studios and then has continuous battles with the security-guard cop at the gate. I think the latter is a takeoff on a famous radio character, but I can't think of his name.

In the story here are caricatures of a few stars, along with cameo appearances by them and references about them. Some of the "stars" given the Looney Tune treatment, one way or the other, include Bette Davis, Johnny Weismuller, Bing Crosby, Abbott and Costello, Ann Sheridan and Jimmy Durante.

Michael Maltese, the writer of this animated short, also pokes fun at WB executives frustrated over not winning an Oscar.

Overall, this is "fair," and not equal to the later Daffy Ducks which were funnier, still wacky but less abrasive. However, it does get an extra star for all the "stars."
