Storyline

Hollywood scrapyard owner Tony is invited by the owner of a strip club to take part in the heist of an armored car. At the man's establishment, Tony meets Sandy, who's stripping to make ends meet while she tries to get her career as an actress off the ground. Tony and Sandy fall in love, but Tony worries that Sandy will fall prey to the seedy side of Hollywood, and decides to take the hold-up job so that he can use his share to help Sandy. But in Hollywood, nothing is ever that easy. Written by Shannon Patrick Sullivan <shannon@mun.ca>

A Messterpiece of a Movie
2 March 2001 | by (Maryland, USA) – See all my reviews

It's no wonder Rue McClanahan usually leaves this little number off of her official resume. Worse than the worst cinematic trainwrecks, Hollywood After Dark is a messterpiece of a movie. The only word that can really, truly describe this film is "bad." Plain and simple. I did not expect an Oscar-worthy work of art, but this defied even my lowest of expectations. Everything about Hollywood After Dark is absolutely awful, from the editing (or lack thereof), plot (what plot?) and cinematography to the lighting and music (which is quite annoying and blares loudly throughout the entire seventy-four minute film). Labeled as a sleazy exploiter, the only thing sleazy about this movie is some awful burlesque dancing, which I suppose was considered rather raunchy when Hollywood After Dark was made in 1961. As for Rue's performance- considering what she was given to work with, it really was not bad. Not an award-winning performance by any means but her's was by far the most promising in the entire film. All in all, Hollywood After Dark is likely one of the worst films I've ever seen. I think the best way to sum it up is just to say that Mystery Science Theater 3000 would have had a field day.
