Storyline

The show opens with the "gossip of the day" in which a Hedda Hopper-ized Holland Taylor mixes tales of the studio era, circa 1937, with the behind the scenes stories of our friends at the mythical Silver Screen Pictures. The plot then develops, often containing crude references to real life stars of yesteryear combined with failed attempts at witty dialogue and plot points that are often inconceivable, i.e. random "raids" on various parties and clubs, although prohibition ended 4 years earlier. The show ends the same way it began, with a sometimes drunk Hedda-Holland giving us a bit of "juicy gossip" about our "favorite" stars, then proceeding to insult them once her radio minute is over. Written by Susan L. Minnick

A television gem!
20 March 2006 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

I recently re-watched some taped episodes of this television series and my original impressions of how terrific this series was, has been confirmed. It is clever and witty; the cast is terrific; and the period sets and costumes are outstanding. Although there is a hilarious "camp" quality to many of the dramatic events in the storyline, I found the characters believable and endearing. What I had initially overlooked is how cleverly the story commented on social issues. Being a movie buff, I thoroughly enjoyed viewing this series about a fictitious Hollywood studio and its employees, set in the golden years of movie-making. I wish the whole series was available on DVD.
