Storyline

This short shows how Hollywood gets ready for the world premiere of an "important" movie. The film celebrated here is Marie Antoinette (1938), which had its premiere at the Carthay Circle Theatre. We see the street leading to the theatre transformed to suggest a garden that might be seen in a French palace. This includes the placement of trees and other foliage, as well as large statues along the route. Grandstands are set up so fans can see their favorite stars as they arrive for the premiere. Finally, the proverbial "galaxy of stars" arrives in their limousines. Fanny Brice and Pete Smith make remarks at the microphone set up on the carpet outside the theatre.

MGM Pumps Its Latest Epic

An MGM MINIATURE Short Subject.

HOLLYWOOD GOES TO TOWN when the film capital's celebrities come out for the premiere of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's MARIE ANTOINETTE (1938).

This purely self-promoting little film gives an interesting look at the lavish last minute preparations outside Hollywood's splendid Cathay Circle theater, as well as the arrival of numerous tinsel town stars.
