The Rise and Fall of a Hollywood schnook
25 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

The late Frankie Vaughn (Let's Make Love) plays a ruthless young Hollywood hopeful who uses his friends (and anyone else handy) as stepping stones on his way to fame as a singing star.

After moving into the communal bachelor pad shared by his brother and three other struggling talents, Vaughn wastes no time in moving in on the girlfriend of one of the guys (Juliet Prowse as a hard-edged hash slinger) only to throw her over for a journalist he hopes will help his career (Martha Hyer).

What makes this film so fun is how transparently sneaky old Vaughn is. He is like a cartoon villain; complete with shifty eves, cheshire cat grin, and light-switch mood swings. All he's missing is a mustache to twirl.

The cliches fly, some bad songs are sung and we get to see Prowse dance a little bit. Mostly we get to see Vaughn be really mean to people, and he makes a delightful bad guy.
