A quintessential '50s movie
27 October 2003 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

From its animated opening credits to the presence of such icons as George Nader and Julie Adams, this is one of those movies which could only have come out of the 1950s. It's glossy, it's superficial, it's utterly unconvincing in its depiction of behind-the-cameras Hollywood, and yet it has the sort of entertaining, audience-pleasing quality which a number of current movies seem to have lost. Of the four women who come to Hollywood via a talent search, each gets involved in a subplot which is neatly tied up before the final fade-out. Gia Scala gets lost in the shuffle but the other three women come across well, especially Elsa Martinelli who dominates every scene she's in with a slightly over-the-top performance. She and Julie Adams and Marianne Cook all have swimsuit scenes but Gia Scala does not.

George Nader also has a swimsuit scene but the other two "hunks" whom Universal was grooming for stardom -- John Gavin and Grant Williams -- do not.

Very little is actually shown of the film-making process and what is depicted is almost laughably unconvincing. Hollywood has always had a problem in filming "Hollywood" and this curio from the 1950s is no exception.
