Storyline

A tour of the MGM lab shows how technicians process movie film and behind-the-scenes glimpses of currently shooting MGM productions: "Marie Antoinette," "Judge Hardy's Children," "Test Pilot," and "Toy Wife" are shown. Film from the Oscar ceremony showing MGM contractees Luise Ranier and Spencer Tracy receiving Oscars is also featured. Of great interest to film buffs are references to films that would not be made for over a decade, albeit with a different cast, including Freddy Bartholomew in "Kim" and Fernand Gravey in "Scaramouche."

A little bit of education, a whole lotta p.r.!
9 February 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Another Romance of celluloid" is a promotional film from MGM that is both educational and a way for the studio to promote their movies...but mostly to promote their movies! I liked the first portion where they talked a bit about how cotton is picked and is somehow magically made into celluloid film (this portion is a bit rushed). Then the focus is on how the film is developed and becomes the finished movie...all very interesting. Following this, however, the focus squarely is on promoting its stars as well as looks at upcoming movies. This is interesting because some of the announced films were never made and some underwent cast changes. The IMDb trivia section discusses this. All in all, for a movie buff like myself, this is a must-see picture...though casual fans of classic Hollywood might not feel so strongly about it.
