Storyline

The editor of a small-town newspaper sends his star reporter out to Hollywood to get the real story of what goes on in Hollywood. She goes tooling down Hollywood Blvd, in her Buick-8 convertible and buys a map showing where the stars live. That's the highlight. In cowboy-speak, this exploitation film..."is all hat...and no cattle." But it does have the world's worst French/Apache dancer ever to clunk across any stage. Kinda ugly, also.

A Virgin in Hollywood (1948)

** (out of 4)

Silly exploitation film about a female news reporter who travels to Hollywood so she can get the scoop on what really happens in the dirty town. The film starts off with a few good laughs and I was expecting things to get even better once we hit Hollywood but that's where the film fell apart. Even by 1948 standards this exploitation flick is rather dull and tame without too much going for it. There are a couple scenes where women almost drop their towels or bathing suites to expose some nudity but that's about it. The "secrets" behind Hollywood are also rather lame. Oh well.
