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

Sally Carter (Evelyn Thawl) arrives in Hollywood hoping to get on the Warner lot for their latest Musical that is about to start shooting. The wannabe actress enters the lot via a tour and soon finds herself on the sound stage and given her one shot to impress with her voice. This certainly isn't the greatest short ever made but it's a pleasant one with some nice performances plus a great look at the Warner back lot. Dick Foran, Wayne Morris, Ann Sheridan and Pat O'Brien all appear early on as their cars pull up to the studio gates. The rest of the film has Thawl doing a little dance and a couple music numbers and for the most part I found them all to be entertaining. I thought she handled herself quite well here and turned in a good performance. Another big key to enjoying this film is that it was shot in 3-strip Technicolor and looks quite good. Just check out that dark green car that O'Brien is riding in.
