A "Broadway Brevity" short from Vitaphone shot in Technicolor that spoofs the Hollywood studio set-up. When the ballerina star of a musical feature walks off in a huff, aided by the fit-throwing director (Fritz Feld), her understudy (Evelyn Thawl) steps in and "a star is born." Written by

Just givin' my bosses a plug; I got an audition coming up. Woo hoo!
"Out Where the Stars Begin" seems like a typical glamorization of Hollywood. It reminds me a little bit of Tex Avery's cartoon "Daffy Duck in Hollywood", in which Daffy interferes with the production of a movie. Exactly the sort of flick that "Mystery Science Theater 3000" could have shown. My favorite character was Nitvitch, the overstuffed director (a parody of "Casablanca" director Michael Curtiz). He's the kind of grouch who we'd all love to be at least once.
Otherwise, the whole thing is really hokey, especially the singing guide. What would be really neat would be a cross between this movie and...oh, I don't know..."Snakes on a Plane"! Or "Idiocracy".
That's my take on it.
