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.

The studio showcased in A Trip Thru a Hollywood Studio is Warner Bros.
6 January 2013 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this short on the 42nd Street DVD. First, we get glimpses of the Fox (before merging with 20th Century Pictures), M-G-M, Paramount, RKO, and Universal studios before landing at Warner Bros.-First National. We then see many stars like James Cagney getting a cigarette from a stagehand, or Pat O'Brien boxing with a former professional. We also see Busby Berkeley and Bobby Connolly choreograph some pretty women through their dances. And then before we see the results of Hugh Herbert's scene, we see how the sound is recorded on film not to mention how the negatives and positives are put together. And then we see Herbert's scene which isn't funny at all and abruptly ends the short. Oh well, the rest has some interest for anyone who likes these rarities.
