Out-takes, 9mostly from Warner Bros.), promotional shorts, movie premieres, public service pleas, wardrobe tests, documentary material, and archival footage make up this star-studded voyeuristic look at the Golden age of Hollywood during the 30s, 40, and 50. Written by
Short compilation of actors flubbing dialogue, old ads or commercials made by stars and some gag footage made specifically for Hollywood insiders. Not very well put together and it has its dull stretches but some highlights are: The Marx Brothers in the MGM logo roaring like the lion (except for Harpo); Bud Abbott flubbing his lines and swearing a blue streak; James Dean doing a PSA for driving safely (shortly before his death in an auto accident); a truly hysterical Jimmy Fund ad with Joan Crawford wishing her children a good night (and you specifically hear them say "Good night Mommie Dearest); a very odd little film with Cecil DeMille and Porky Pig swearing! No great shakes but a fun little movie. I give it an 8.
