The opening Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer logo has an "OUT TO LUNCH" sign in front of the circle hiding the lion's head as he roars. The sign then flips up to reveal an animated man trapped inside the lion. The man's hands and feet beat and kick the lion as the man yells "Ow! Ow! Get me outta here!" See more »
A better title would have been "Our Big Stars and Some Special Effects "... Much of it is just film run backward and sight gags... ie the train scenes at the beginning... smoke going back into the stack, and when the handcart gets out of the way at the last second at the bottom of the mountainside, watch for the big puff of sand right BEFORE the cart moves.. not after. This review would probably be more interesting for those who haven't seen the specific films highlighted here. It's a whole bunch of short clips from their big films. Written, directed, produced by Robert Youngson, who even wrote the lyrics to a lot of the accompanying (bad) songs to the clips. Melodies by Bernard Green... must have taken them about eight minutes during the lunch hour to come up with those songs. Gotta mark this one down... you can skip it if you've seen most of the films involved.
