Storyline

This short first shows the audience the entrances of the major Hollywood studios, then visits the Warner Brothers/First National studio. We start at the casting office, then get to see Busby Berkeley and choreographer Bobby Connolly working with chorus girls on production numbers. Then come some candid shots of several contract stars, such as Warren William, Ann Dvorak, and Pat O'Brien. Finally, we see comedian Hugh Herbert filming a scene for an upcoming release.

A behind the scenes look at how and where films are made.
1 January 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While "A Trip Thru a Hollywood Studio" is easy to skip, for fans of classic Hollywood, it's a must-see.

Although the film was made by Warner Brothers, it begins with a quick overview of the major studios--and shows you some exterior shots of Fox, RKO, Warner Brothers, Paramount, MGM and Universal--all set to the song "You Ought to Be in Pictures". Then, it begins to look within the studio---showing some of the stars of Warner supposedly acting like 'real folks' behind the scenes (I am sure all this was carefully staged). Then the process showing how sound is recorded and then put onto the film strip is shown--and this stuff is pretty fascinating. Additionally, you see clips from some short starring Hugh Herbert.

This is a mildly interesting look behind the scenes and although I doubt if Hugh Herbert applied his own makeup, it all was pretty watchable.
