Storyline

Students at New York's Rovina Finishing School for Girls send their photographs to the makers of Claybury's Beauty Soap, in the hope of being chosen as "Miss Complexion of 1934." Martha Howson wins the contest, which includes a trip to Hollywood and a tour of the Warner Brothers lot with Lyle Talbot. When she gets to the studio, all she wants to do is meet Dick Powell, star of the new Warner Brothers film Dames (1934). During her search for Powell, she (and the audience) gets to see several scenes from that movie. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@verizon.net>

And She Learned About Dames (1934)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Warner short has a woman (Martha Merrill) winning a trip to Hollywood where she gets a tour of the studio by Lyle Talbot himself. Talbot takes the star struck beauty onto the set of DAMES where she meets Busby Berkeley and star Dick Powell. If you're a fan of DAMES then you might want to check this out as it turns out to be nothing more than a promotional piece. As such, I think the film does a good job at building up some hype for Warner's (then) upcoming movie. Merrill has a lot of charm even though her Hollywood career never took off. Talbot, Berkeley and Powell also do fine, if brief, work.
