Entertaining look into the Hollywood Studio, starlet, and star building system.
This very short-lived series was totally entertaining and got me to the TV each week it was on as it shows one or two of the ways that movies get cast and made and the intrigue and treachery that can if you believe it be involved. That's what made Bracken's World entertaining as from top to bottom the studio head, the agents, the starlets feigned friendship or it was real and got hurt or the men and their efforts or dating complications across studios. Although this system is said gone in favor of today's star/agent driven self-building and star owned production companies maybe this would make Bracken's World even more entertaining now in comparison to how would such things work today. For instance having seen Inside Daisy Clover and learned what things like looping are and having watched Natalie Wood act out a breakdown on screen during some looping whenever I feel I can detect such a thing as voice dubbing/ syncing(looping) that is not quite right or sounds like someone else other than the actor in question in todays deleted scenes of dvds I cannot help but think of Bracken's World and the studio system and how stars and studios did it then and do it today. I remember being enthralled by the finagling of the actors and actresses on Bracken's World particularly Peter Haskell, Elizabeth Allen, Karen Jensen not Marten Jensen as I thought I had remembered and even Jeanne Cooper, Kay Chancellor of todays The Young & The Restless were regulars or made stops at Bracken's World.
I am not sure if this series is available on DVD but if it ever is hope it is the complete series and try it out. If for nothing else maybe the deleted scenes that might be included.
