A Rare ALL STAR CAST Behind The Scenes Tour AND Promotional Film for Universal Pictures from 1925
12 November 2011 | by (Hollywood, California) – See all my reviews

Thank goodness "Uncle" Carl Laemmle was around near the beginning of the Motion Picture Industry as he was as great a showman and promoter as anyone today. This truly fascinating glimpse of the Universal City Studio in 1925 utilizes the entire lot, most of its stars and sets and gives a preview for, at the time of its premiere, unreleased film clips for future release.

The cast is seen in either new footage unique to this short subject or from an actual film in production. Using the premise of giving a studio tour to an important visitor from out of town, we get a private view of the land of Universal Pictures make believe. Along the way, we get to meet many of the top talents at the studio.

The property and its mountain landscape haven't changed over the past hundred years but the buildings have. This film takes you back to a different time and as some of the photography shows, you can almost imagine being in front of the Notre Dame church that Lon Chaney rescued Patsy Ruth Miller or the front office that so many people went through.

This film can boast of more talent from 1925 than almost any other film. Universal Pictures had the good sense to make behind the scenes films over the decades; this offering is one of the best from any studio at any time. Thank you "Uncle" Carl.
