This short begins at Boulder Dam (now Hoover Dam). The electricity generated here by the Colorado River is sent to Hollywood, where movie studios need it to make movies. After a tour of the MGM studios' power plants, we see short advertisements for upcoming MGM releases. Written by

This MGM short starts off talking about the creation of the Hoover Dam but quickly goes into promoting their own films. We start off hearing about the men who created the Hoover Dam and we're told why it was done, which of course was for the electricity that it could create. We then go to MGM studios where we see how the eclectic allows the company to use lights and other items to help make movies. We then see clips from the movies before ending with them showing us how the theater needs electricity to show the movies. I think 99.9% of people are going to know that you need eclectic to do these things but if you're a fan of the studio then you might get a few kicks out of this promotional short. I think the most interesting moment is actually the quick bio of the dam but this of course gets the least amount of time. There are a few nice behind-the-scenes looks at THE WIZARD OF OZ and we also get clips to films like THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN and I TAKE THIS WOMAN with Spencer Tracy.
