A very pleasant comedy from the Stern Brothers, this concerns a woman who, in her own words "want to be an actress in the worst way", and no, the director, comedy veteran William Watson, doesn't step on his own lines. He allows the audience to supply the punch line.
In the meantime, Mr. Watson shows us the silly shoddiness behind the movies. If not as multi-layered as the Lloyd Hamilton/Roscoe Arbuckle THE MOVIES, released a year earlier, this is a straight farce with straightforward gags that are well executed. They won't enlighten or ennoble you. but they will make you laugh. Surely that's enough.
Leading actress Edna Marion went on to a supporting role at Roach and worked for a while longer. She is willing to look funny for this movie, and do silly things. There's no clear sign of any noteworthy talent here, but this movie doesn't need it.
