PARAMOUNT CELEBRATES IT'S TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY!
18 May 1999 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

This fascinating film from 1931 was designed as almost a "history" of Paramount studios. They had been in business for some years when they decided to promote their stars and projects in this production. It even includes some ideas, clips, and proposals for the 1931-32 season, some of the projects which never came about. But the absolute highlight: The Marx Bros. in the "Monkey Business" promo!
