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 quick look inside Warner Bros. studios in 1935...
22 October 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

We get to see an outside glimpse of various major studios during Hollywood's golden years, including Fox, RKO, Warner Bros., Paramount, MGM and Universal before the film concentrates on the Warner studio.

After a brief background on the cumbersome equipment needed to make movies, including overhead mikes and huge cameras, there's a look at several Warner players going about their business on the Warner lot.

But first, some chorus girls go through their paces rehearsing a number about to be filmed for some unnamed musical under Busby Berkeley's direction.

Then we get a glimpse of several Warner stars in supposedly candid moments on the studio lot. Among these are Pat O'Brien, Jean Muir, James Cagney and Dolores Del Rio. Then there's a bit by Hugh Herbert who goes through a take on one of his upcoming films with material that is decidedly below par.

At the finish of Herbert's act, it's "The End." Uninspired little short subject has really nothing to offer in the way of true entertainment.
