In this "Romance of Celluloid", MGM showcases performers whose careers are just starting. Excerpts from their recently released films are included. The narrator says that moviegoers will have to decide whether these fledgling actors and actresses have that certain quality that made superstars out of MGM players 'Clark Gable', 'Spencer Tracy', and Lana Turner.

MGM short made to highlight some of their up and coming stars. The film starts off talking about how personality is what actors must have and we see a few clips from the likes of Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy. We then go into future stars with Donna Reed, Van Johnson, Lucille Norman and Susan Peters being called "people to keep your eyes on". Another nice section is a screen test for an Andy Hardy movie where Frances Rafferty, Carole Gallagher and Ester Williams compete for the role. The role would eventually go to Williams and it's nice seeing the tests that the director would have to pick from. All in all this is a pretty entertaining short that states its case in the ten-minute running time.
