Storyline

Basically this is a commercial for Hollywood's Lido Lounge and for MGM contract players. The Lido is a large watering hole; we visit one afternoon with an orchestra playing, all sorts of stars and would-be stars sitting at tables near the pool alongside paying customers, and bathing beauties parading and diving. The Lido's manager, Reggy Denny, introduces the stars in the audience. He's sometimes interrupted by someone who does a bit, sings a song, or otherwise entertains: most of these are novelty acts. By the end, everyone's having a swell time. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Starlit Days at the Lido (1935)

*** (out of 4)

This short from MGM is a must-see because of the 3-strip Technicolor used and the number of stars that get thrown into the mix. The actual story is pretty weak as we get introduced to a few musical groups while we then get to look at the people in the stands and this is where we find the celebrities. This here was produced by Louis Lewyn who is best remembered for creating all those Hollywood ON PARADE and THE VOICE OF Hollywood shorts. I'm going to guess his main goal here was to sell MGM on the idea of what 3-strip Technicolor could look like. The result is drop-dead gorgeous as the color is amongst the most beautiful that I've seen from any film from this period. The colors just jump off the screen and it almost looks as if we're looking at painted items just because of how wonderful they look. The grass is so rich and detailed that it almost seems like you're watching a HD product. That's the main reason to watch this film but we also get various stars making cameos and these stars include Clark Gable, Robert Montgomery, Francis Lederer, Cliff Edwards, Reginald Denny, Johnny Mack Brown, Buster Crabbe, Richard Barthelmess, Constance Bennett and Baby LeRoy.
